There are over 15,000 general contractors in Oregon, with the majority of them building tract homes, In-Fill Housing (New, Craftsman looking houses, built with building center materials), and an abundance of contractors attempting the turn of the Century Victorians, Craftmans and Bungalows. With great art and skill required to restore these homes, there are only a handful of craftsman able to accomplish this. These talented contractors will confirm that restoration is not only extremely expensive but also laboriously time consuming. Vintage house parts are becoming harder and harder to find and when found, more than likely need restoring themselves. Most run of the mill contractors will neglect the fact that older homes are not energy efficient and have potential problems way beyond the 12" mahogany crown molding such as 100 year old wiring, plumbing and lack of proper insulation. These homes can also be extremely unhealthy, depending on their condition. The majority of turn of the century homes contain lead, asbestos, mold and other dangerous materials that, if not dealt with properly, can put you and your loved ones at great risk and turn your home or workplace in to a biohazard.
