There is a great difference in historical renovation and historical preservation.
Historical renovation usually involves totally restoring an old building or home with the most modern techniques. Sometimes disregarding any historical significants. For most part it’s done with no respect to the period of the building. Commercial projects tend to only pay their respects on the exterior and common area.
Historical preservation is something different all together.This type of work is focused on preserving the original fabrics of the building or home. The rule of thumb is when things have to be replaced is to replace like with like. Their is no substitutes allowed. These projects require a great deal of knowledge to the period of the local craftsmen and the tools available at the time.
