1. Advantages in dealing with a Historical Specialist rather than a Generalist…
Companies that specialize in historical restoration work in trades that can include but are not limited to carpentry, lead abatement, gold leaf application, masonry, traditional roofing, plasterwork, painting, and ornamental metal. Historical Restoration companies generally have a majority of these trades in their arsenal, employing dozens of individuals who specialize in these crafts and have years of experience working on complex projects. You want a company that understands the complexity of historical restoration rather than a “general contractor.”
2. Hiring a Historical Restoration company to complete your entire project ensures safety on the worksite and better communication.
When you hire several different contractors to complete work on your site, you are at the mercy of their schedules lining up (or not). When you hire a Historical Restoration company to complete all the work on your project, scheduling conflicts are avoided entirely because scheduling is done upfront, internally, and according to your schedule, and your schedule only – not the other three contractors you hired! Additionally, because there is only one schedule to abide by work gets done faster and there are fewer mishaps. Better communication amongst workers means better communication with the client – you!
3. Working exclusively with a Historical Restoration company means less paperwork and management.
How? Well, imagine this: you hire a painter, a carpenter, and a mason. That means three contracts, three separate contacts, three different work plans that need approval… the list goes on. If you hire a Historical Restoration company, that’s one contract and one contact person. With fewer documents to keep track of, fewer emails to respond to, and fewer company contacts, your management of the project flows much more seamlessly.
