Want To Restore An Old Early 20th Century Home? The Wood Is The Most Important


Have you recently purchased an old home? Do you want to restore it to its former glory while incorporating some modern features and touches? If so, restoring the wood throughout the house will be one of the most important things to do.

You will have to contact a custom woodworking and restoration professional to take a look at the wood and give you a blueprint of ideas and an estimate of the cost. Here are some services you should consider in your home restoration.

Wood Restoration Options

Try to have all the wood floors, baseboards, windows and other wood features sanded and stained to match the original wood to the house. The sanding will remove all the scratches and marks that occur over time and the staining will make the wood look rich, lustrous and new again. If there are pieces of the floor that need to be replaced, you will want to do so when they are sanding so everything can be stained together.

Custom Frames and Windows  

Have the old windows been replaced and the door frames been damaged? Ask the custom wood working professional to mimic the original wood frames and windows throughout the house and make new ones. This means these frames and windows will have the same appearance as when the house was first built, and they can be stained to match the other wood in the home.

Built-Ins and Crawford Ceilings

Were you hoping to have any built-in shelving options for the television and office or in other areas of the house like the bedrooms? Do you want to have beams or Crawford ceilings added throughout the living space? If so, the wood working professional can match the wood or do whatever you want to create these things in the space for you, giving the home a personalized feel.

Caring for the wood and restoring it to its original design and color are some of the most important things you can do when you are trying to restore a home. A custom woodworking expert from a company like Warburton Woodworks Ltd can try to add things that have been removed over time and can help you try to incorporate your new and modern appliances and furniture into the vintage space. Make sure that you know what changes need to be made so that you can compare quotes and have an accurate budget for the project.
