Restoring a historic building or home is no small undertaking. Special care needs to be taken when dealing with historic preservation.
Historic homes and buildings are required to follow strict home rehabilitation guidelines.
A home or building is deemed historic or architecturally significant by the National Register of Historic Places—or by the local historic board—if it exemplifies a signature architectural style, captures the essence of a given time period, or is associated with famous people from the past. Also included in this category are homes located in neighborhoods designated as historic districts.
Since house exteriors, such as windows and roofs, embody the original architecture or design style, they are to be preserved and can only be replaced in kind.
Sound Control Systems can carefully study the Standards for Rehabilitation of Historic Buildings imposed by local/state laws and provide recommendations for total window replacement or provide suggestions for window additions (ComfortSEAL).
