A WELL-PRESERVED HOUSE
According to real estate market experts, a well maintained house with a heritage cachet has significantly higher market value. So, maintenance is phase one.
In an ideal world, the various owners of a heritage property over time would have taken care of it, making sure it was well maintained. If they didn’t do so, some elements will definitely show signs of old age and deterioration. However, before replacing them, we should consider phase two of our approach: repair.
The vast majority of the components of an old building can be repaired since they are made of materials that can be fixed.
For example, if part of the wall is damaged, the bricks can be restored. This will save you having to replace the entire wall. However, if the repairs are not done in time, you may have no choice but to go to phase three and replace damaged items.
Replacing masonry while retaining a building’s architectural heritage is always a risky business. It is always best to replace the damaged item with a matching item. The original item is part of a whole that gives a building its distinctive character. Putting something different in its place will actually destroy the harmony of the whole.
