Historic Home Renovation

If you bought a beautiful historic home, but have found it needs some – or extensive – repairs and remodeling to make it livable, do not worry! RBC Construction, Coachella Valley’s premier home building and remodeling professionals, can help you renovate your historic home without losing the unique look that drew you to it in the first place.

Historic home renovation and preservation can be a complex project. We want to conserve your home’s look and feel, and ensure that its historical significance remains intact, while simultaneously making it comfortable for you to live in. We do not recommend taking on a project like this on your own – there can be a lot of problems to address, which may only get worse with a thorough inspection.

Some of the issues commonly facing historic homes include:

  • Rotting and cracking of wooden support beams or foundation
  • Asbestos insulation
  • Water leakage
  • Foundation settling
  • Insect or animal infestation
  • And more

Working with a professional contractor who completes a thorough inspection of your historic home can help alleviate some of your stress. We can tell you exactly what is wrong and what we can do to fix it, and how we plan to accomplish your renovation without disrupting your home’s historic aesthetic style. Once we determine the overall condition of your building, our design-build experts will work with you to figure out the best way to stabilize and restore your home, while bringing it up to code and making sure it is safe for you and your family to live in. If your home is a historical landmark, we make sure we are following the guidelines from historic preservation commissions to keep it that way.

Whether you have bought this home yourself or it is a historic family property that has been passed down through generations, we want to restore it to living condition and make it livable for years to come. We want you to be proud and happy to live in a piece of history, and we want to revitalize your home’s spirit so that it can last you for several more generations.

Interior vs. Exterior Renovation

If you want to modernize your interior while keeping your exterior largely intact, we can help you with that. Updating things like your kitchen fixtures, cabinets, and layout, for example, can bring a more open flow to your home’s floor plan without largely altering your home’s overall aesthetic. We can help you update your interior rooms while leaving your exterior largely untouched.

Some exterior renovations we may have to do, however, can be completed without losing the effect of your historical architecture. We can replace your roof shingles or work with you to update your older windows without altering their effect on your home’s façade. Our design-build team has the skills and experience to restore your home and make it look like new – in the historical sense!
