High Quality Historic Home Renovation

Modernize your older home in Chester County, PA.


Many older houses in Pennsylvania benefit from renovation projects to upgrade and beautify the premises. If you've considered undertaking residential improvements to make your home in Chester County more comfortable, Forest Ridge Builders possesses the design and building skills to transform your dreams into reality.

In the past, architects designed many lovely older homes without including amenities that people often regard as essential today. Modern Pennsylvania homeowners sometimes enjoy significant increases in the market value of their residential properties by making certain types of changes to stately older dwellings:


  • Modernize the kitchen or bathrooms to meet contemporary standards
  • Adding or enlarging rooms to feel more spacious
  • Replace worn asphalt shingles with an attractive, strong metal, cedar, or slate roof
  • Use PVC and fiber cement products instead of wooden siding and windows
  • Replace narrow, steep interior staircases with safer, wider stairways
  • Offer handicap accessibility improvements
  • Finish basements and attics to significantly expand the size of functional living areas
  • Add a garage or additional special purpose rooms

By upgrading residential properties to include trendy popular features, households usually enjoy a more comfortable quality of life. However, the process of renovating an old home requires skill and craftsmanship in order to help ensure that the improvements don't destroy the charming ambiance of attractive existing features.
