We understand the many intricacies involved in the historical preservation process, and work hand-in-hand with property owners to deliver a project with unsurpassed quality that blends seamlessly with existing aesthetics.

Preserving History is a Delicate Process

Our renovation strategy to blend new with the old is simple: disturb as little as possible, while preserving as much as possible. Our goal is to honor the past by matching the original craftsmanship while simultaneously providing clients with a property that meets modern living standards.


We bring the foundation, footings and structure up to modern building codes to ensure the building is safe and stable for years to come.

Modern Amenities

Our professionals fit the building with modern plumbing, electricity, communications, entertainment and security to provide the newest technologies in the oldest of buildings.

Creature Comforts

We install doors, windows, insulation, HVAC and zone heating systems that bring the building to modern energy efficient standards. By using geothermal, solar and microturbines we can make the building even more energy efficient than traditional systems.

Rescue the Details

Rather than scrapping old materials, Kiel Thomson’s crew of restoration experts reuses the historical woodwork and period elements to restore the building as accurately as possible.

Replace What’s Lost

When original elements of the building are not salvageable, our team has the skills to precisely recreate architectural details that would otherwise be lost.

Long-term Property Maintenance

When you restore a historical building, it’s important to keep it maintained to preserve it for the future. Protect your investment for years to come by having the professionals at Kiel Thomson Company maintain your newly restored building.
