Preserve Your Historical Property With a House Inspection

I know that older homes can be tricky to maintain. That’s why I offer detailed inspections of your historic property, as well as research on the home’s history and prior work done. I’ll recommend care and any needed improvements so you can stay informed about what needs attention and how best to approach it.

Book Consultation
Get a top-to-bottom inspection of your hisoric home and its mechanical systems. I don’t just check for cosmetic defects—I also look for moisture damage, mold, and other signs of problems that could lead to future issues.

Work With a Historic Preservation Specialist in Westfield, NJ

If you own a historic home and want to learn how to care for it, consider hiring me as a Historic Home Consultant. I studied Historic Preservation at Drew University and lived on Nantucket Island for many years where I restored several historic homes. I also work with several non-profit organizations regarding the maintenance and restoration of their properties.

While every property is unique, I start each consultation with a complete property inspection and use that to identify issues that need attention and to suggest preventive maintenance. I can also help you find qualified tradespeople to work on your home.

Over the years, I’ve learned that many historic property owners feel they own much more than just a house—they’ve assumed a responsibility to preserve a piece of history. In addition to an inspection, I can help you research the history of the home and identify resources to help you maintain it.
