Historic Restoration

1920's brass door knob - Joel Truitt Builders Historic Restoration

Historic restoration is a bit more complicated than a basic remodeling project because it is important to maintain the integrity of the original features of the home. Proper and authentic restoration of the old homes in Washington DC requires expert knowledge about the detail, materials, and architecture of these buildings.

Historic Restoration Services

Many of the historic homes in DC have unique woodworking features that may need preservation or restoration. Does your home have a beautiful, carved door or interior wood trim? Over time, the wood can appear old and worn, and it eventually needs to be repaired and restored. And very often, home “improvements” made along the way may have led to changes or removal of original detail. Precision and care is required to properly maintain old wood, and special tools may be needed to replicate original details. Preserving and restoring architectural features to an historic home almost always increases its value.

The integrity of the wood, as well as the overall design, can be preserved if the proper tools and techniques are used. We have been working on old homes and buildings in Washington, DC since 1972, and have the detailed experience and knowledge to ensure that your restoration project is handled correctly.
