New England and Boston’s North Shore where Apex is based, is known for its historic home renovation. If you’re looking to restore and preserve your own piece of history, trust our builders to bring your period home back to its former glory.
Boston’s North Shore, located along the rocky coastline of Massachusetts, has a rich history. It was once home to the Naumkeag Native American tribe, and later colonists who moved into this beautiful coastal region starting in the late 1600s. Some of the homes those early colonists built are still standing today as well as those built in the 1700s, 1800s and early 1900s. The first settlers stayed true to their European roots building homes in the tradition of the houses they left behind when they moved to America. Preserving these homes presents numerous building and aesthetic challenges and require detailed knowledge and creative building techniques to maintain their character while bringing them up to modern safety and building standards.
Our craftsmen can renew your period home, restoring its detail and character using materials that respect its heritage while addressing the many problems that may lurk below the surface. Period homes often have unsafe or insufficient electrical conduits, inadequate heating and cooling systems and may also have structural problems because they were built using old-fashioned building techniques that have long been outdated. Our team can bolster your home’s skeleton and systems, bringing them up to code using modern building science—without jeopardizing its history or character. Our carpenters will carefully selecting the right woods for your project, matching veneers and using joinery and construction techniques that are durable and flawless. This will give your new custom home world-class wood finishes that harken back to an earlier time.
Apex can ensure that your period home is not only secure and comfortable but up to the task of housing a modern family. Ultimately, we’ll deliver a final product with the same high-quality craftsmanship and beauty of the original—only better.
