Preservation and Conservation
Buildings reflect the passage of time, and J.M. Kelley Ltd. is committed to the preservation of your building's historic character and integrity. Incompatible restoration procedures can diminish a building's value by accelerating deterioration and erasing historic character. We address each project individually with sympathetic, low impact techniques yielding the highest results, without sacrificing character or age value.
Our knowledge of historic architecture, hands-on expertise in modern and traditional restoration techniques, and close relationships with other skilled crafts people combine to insure consistency and quality from planning through completion.
Consultation and Inspection
The rate for these services obviously depends on the complexity of the structure, number of outbuildings etc. I believe you will find our fee structure compatible with the wealth of information we supply.
"Our company has successfully collaborated with Michael Kelley on projects as diverse as they were demanding. It is my observation that Mike has the earned distinction of being the area's recognized authority in his field, providing the greater capital region and well beyond with a scarce, yet exceptional source of knowledge in historic architecture, historic preservation and traditional restoration techniques. As an experienced preservation contractor and studied consultant, Mike Kelley provides his clients with architectural evaluations, conditions analysis, and preservation plans that are thorough, detailed, and fully reliable."
