What is Restoration?

Restoration is an umbrella term that is used to describe the process of returning a building, home or property to its original form and condition.

The process of restoration typically involves repair of some essential elements to bring them back to their usual state and putting back a part of the property to a satisfactory state.

For example, a house roof that had been badly damaged by a hurricane in Miami may require roof restoration to bring it back to its original state.

A home that has been flooded with water due to burst pipes may require restoration to repair the damages and put things back to normal. 

The Process of Property Restoration

A restoration is a form of home maintenance service that requires the expertise of professionals and specialists. The objective is to restore the property to its original state and to bring it back to satisfactory form to recover its functionality and make it suitable for human occupancy.

Those who are in the business of flipping houses are aware of the entire process. Although in such cases, restoration is usually coupled with serious repairs and other home improvement projects to increase the value of the property. 

Property Restoration is a meticulous process. It usually involves a restoration team that consists of professionals under different specializations.
