Denver, CO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/09/2012 -- The preservation and restoration of old homes and buildings of particular significance is tantamount to honoring the past, and recognizing its contributions to society. Much like safeguarding a home, preserving rehabilitation-worthy establishments is a necessary step to keep the historic value of certain important sites.
“Restoration is not like new construction or ‘renovation’, as the existing structure must be respected and understood as a unique state-of-being. Each project is approached individually with expert craftsmanship to create a beautiful, lasting restoration,” says John Voelker of Cornerstone Restoration. “
