If you own a period house you are in a fortunate position and even more so if your house dates back hundreds of years. Period homes are highly sought after and often sell for far more than newly built properties in the same areas.
Victorian and Georgian houses are the most likely period properties to be found on the market nowadays and the houses that retain their prices are the ones that are both rare and stand out due to their unique architectural features.
It is important therefore to preserve these features if you want to protect your investment for years to come. The value is only going to rise in the years to come and the care you take in preserving its architectural features will almost certainly reap rewards in the future.
Along with preserving what you know are its original features, you may also need to add features that are missing or that may been replaced with certain additions from another period. These should be replaced where possible and a visit to a reclamation yard like ours can help you find those items.
The important thing to do is research homes from a similar period to ensure you don’t make mistakes and devalue the property.
