Many people fear that the costs involved in historic renovation aren’t worth it in the long run. We believe that all historic homes are worth saving because they save much more than the structure of the home itself. Preserving a historic home reserves that home’s moment in history and provides a brief glimpse into the architecture involved during that specific period.
Some districts try to claim that historic homes devalue surrounding properties. Real studies show increases in property valuation, which raises more revenue for the city itself and local school systems as well. Well-preserved historic properties create additional housing and maintain the historic value of the neighborhoods in which they are situated.
It is more damaging to the environment to tear down historic buildings and replace them with new structures. The amount of energy expended and materials used far exceeds the amount of energy and materials used to renovate the property instead of demolishing it. The demolition of a historic home adds roughly 115 tons of material into local landfills. This is never a good thing.
The melding of architectural types throughout the city adds a lot to the skyline and to the overall aesthetic beauty of the city we all know and love: Denver.
