Whether you are buying a fixer upper, or restoring an old period home, the number one consideration of home restorations is the period in which the home was built. Whether your home has elements of a California bungalow, Federation or Edwardian styles, Art Deco or the Contemporary architecture of the 70s and 80s, each of these styles will be evident in the detail. RGH Home Improvements will carefully consider your existing wall panelling, ceiling and plaster detail, as well as the facade when making restorations to your home. From skirting boards and architraves, handrails and balustrades to doors, eaves, ramps or weatherboard replacements we have the period knowledge to add the home improvements you desire or simply restore your home to its previous glory.
In the early 70s the look was all about exposed timbers and embracing the connection of the home with the outside, which we are seeing more and more of in todays housing designs with the growing popularity of Alfresco dining, timber decking and the addition of pergolas. A deck is an addition to a house that can really add to the function of your home. Whether you require a small landing outside the laundry door or a large addition for entertaining family and friends, RGH Home Improvements can restore/repair your existing or build a new outdoor space designed just for you.
Quite often when working with 70s and 80s properties, the aim is to open up the living and kitchen areas, to allow greater communal living. For example, floors can be a hidden gem, finding hardwood floors underneath old lino or carpets, which if you can restore is always a bonus, however, an engineered board or replacement of the floor can invigorate your home with new style. Should your restoration become a bigger project, if you would like to consider open plan living or adding on an extra room, please refer to the Home Renovations and Home Extensions sections or complete our contact form..
