External Restoration to a Victorian Property

Whilst recently undertaking a Full Building Survey in the Croydon area, we came across the different styles of restoration that have taken place to the Period properties. Many Victorian properties have been spoilt by poor quality repairs and alterations. These changes are not in keeping with the original design or character of the house.

The picture below shows the difference between a Victorian property that has been tastefully restored, complete with full brick cleaning and one that has simply been repainted.
