Our Residential Historic Renovation Services in Metairie 

RWC honors Metairie’s historic structures and advocates for their protection. However, if you’re planning to live in these stately residences, we have to make some changes to make the property more livable and safer for your family.

  • Improve Safety – Ensure your house is up to code and follows safety requirements in Metairie. Our team will make your home structurally sound.
  • Upgrade Plumbing and Electrical Systems – Our team will update the plumbing and electrical systems if they’re outdated or inefficient. The place will also have proper insulation.
  • Modernize the Layout – Depending on your requirements, we’ll change the layout of the rooms to improve flow and increase natural light inside the house.
  • Meet Your Unique Needs – Whether you want a bigger kitchen or cozier bedrooms, we’ll renovate the house for the lifestyle you lead.
