Heritage home renovations in Vancouver are becoming increasingly complex due to the city’s heritage building codes and environmental standards. Most buildings built in the 1950s or earlier have to be completely gutted to meet the cities current environmental standards. As a result, all that remains of some heritage homes are the exterior facade.
Furthermore, any renovation plan must be approved with a permit from the city of Vancouver. This process can be long and challenging for the owners. A lot of time can be wasted obtaining a development permit if the owner is not prepared.
These are not the only challenges heritage homeowners have to face for a renovation project. The cost of required materials can be substantial too. And finding an experienced heritage renovation company is also difficult. Heritage renovations are often very complex and will require a renovation team with intimate knowledge of the requirements.
