When it comes to restoring a historic home, you don’t want to hire just anyone. Sullivan & Forbes has been restoring homes to their former beauty for over 20 years. We’re committed to highlighting the historical nature of the home by using salvaged materials, when possible, and preserving the features that make each home unique. Our team works to integrate builder and customer goals to ensure the finished project is a home you will enjoy for many years to come.

The Sullivan & Forbes historic restoration construction process starts with listening to the customer’s vision and detailed planning. Our experienced restoration contractors and engineers inspect each element of the home to determine where structural improvements must be made and perform extensive preparation for any demolition that will take place.

Our Building Experience

Sullivan & Forbes is more than just a builder. Our design/build team and all of our associates will assist you with coordinating fixtures and selecting color schemes for your custom home. We’ll work to use existing materials wherever possible; refinishing original hardwood floors for example, reusing original masonry work and bringing fireplaces back to life. Where original materials cannot be used, we will find ways to replicate them.

For owners who wish to incorporate energy efficient elements into their historic home, Sullivan & Forbes will bring your home up to today’s standards to help you save on your energy bills.
