Construction restoration as a career is very satisfying and rewarding. The process of restoration can be made simpler by combining art with science. With the advent of new technology, its usage proves to be useful and successful. New techniques and methods have been formulated which makes the work slightly easier. Also the new procedures give a long lasting effect to the buildings. To create something new is not as tedious as maintaining and upgrading a structure that is in existence is. This is so because in olden times the materials that were available were different and probably are not found any more. So using the right materials becomes very important. With a creative bent and skills one can make this a full time profession. 

Over time buildings do not remain the same as they were when they were built. Restoration becomes necessary when the state of the building or its art has failed and needs replacement with the current and modern features. Restoration of heritage buildings and other buildings is different. Once often thinks it is the same thing. The difference is that in the former, the historic structure and decorations are preserved. When carrying out heritage restoration, one needs to keep in mind the historical period it depicts and the time when it was made so that the same can be conserved. This makes doing up old historic buildings like churches and forts to be very challenging. The work is done so that the building does not dilapidate and decay. Replacing the earlier heating and cooling systems with ones with newer technology, installing of climate controllers are some of the works carried out while undertaking heritage restoration. Therefore when a heritage structure is preserved while carrying out building restoration, the state of a historic building is symbolised. In case of building restoration, the earlier materials that have been used are reprocessed and reused or materials similar to the earlier ones are used. The inside and outside of the building are painted.

Before starting the process of restoration, the use of non-original paints is applied. But the colors present the same problem in time. The cause of such damages is the pollution, sun and acid rain leading to wearing away of the layers making up the structures. Materials that were used when the historical building was constructed are sometimes unstable and may at times not be environmental friendly. These materials then become impossible to be used. For example, during the eighteenth century greens were made of arsenal which is now a banned substance to be used in paints.

The method of restoration includes flooring, masonry, containment, building cleaning, historic preservation, residential and structural repairs, industrial floor, roofing, employees, concrete restoration, epoxy floors, waterproofing, water intrusion and the like. 

If you feel you have the ability to carry out the above work, this career path can be interesting for you. If you get the opportunity to do so it is great as not many get the chance to help preserving their heritage structures.
