Renaissance Restorations, Inc. performs historic restorations throughout Detroit historic neighborhoods: Indian Village, Palmer Woods, Sherwood Forest, University District, Boston-Edison, Woodbridge, Grosse Pointe Communities, and Rosedale Park. The major difference between a historic home and any other neighborhood home can be boiled down to the simple evolution of restoration vs. renovation. In a historic home the goal is simple…preservation. Preserve the dwelling the way it was built. In any other neighborhood home design evolution is free to take its course and change with the times and fads.

Many homeowners can attest to the vestiges of “modern” eras gone by and have purchased a home with shag carpets or an orange Formica kitchen. Although the term preservation is simple, in actuality preserving a home is far from simple. Repair of the home must be done in respect to the material and design of the original construction. This means finding the hard to find materials that have long been thought to be extinct!

Renaissance Restorations specializes in such work and is your source for restoring classic Detroit area homes to their truly deserved glory. As a registered member of the Michigan Historic Preservation Network, we have the credentials and dedication needed for your important restoration project.

Historic home preservation can be a very exhaustive process that can include work on any or all of the following: roofing, electrical systems, plumbing, doors, windows, walls, ceilings, woodwork and masonry. Needless to say, that can be a rather daunting task. In addition, the entire project needs to be planned out in its entirety before work begins. Because every case is different and every home is unique, we will consult you in detail to determine which plan of action works best for your given situation.
