What You Need to Know Before You Start a Historic Restoration Project

Reconnecting a historic building with its past is a tricky business.

Before You Start:

Know the Exact Service You Need

At Greaves Construction, we offer a wide array of projects to suit your specific needs. We will make it our goal to protect, retain and/or reproduce your home’s features strictly in the style of its restoration period while keeping its unique Tampa flare. Our historic restoration company can perform a wide variety of services: we can make seamless additions to your already perfect historic home, or recreate your worn stained-glass windows. We can make all this happen and more while still treating your home respectfully and carefully.

Things to Remember:

Small Details Make a Big Difference

At Greaves Construction, we know even the smallest difference in shades of blue or type of masonry can affect a house’s appearance. We have 25 years of experience in the Tampa construction industry, meaning we know the importance of attention to the specifics.
