Finding contractors is hard, and those that know how to work on old homes can be even harder.

Old Omaha Vintage Real Estate Team has compiled and maintains this list of good, reputable people that we can recommend to you.

Many of these contractors are old home-specific. Please patronize these businesses and don’t forget to let us know about your experience.  Oh! and don’t forget to let them know that you referred by Old Omaha.

Electricians

Electric Express

"It took a strong recommendation from another Realtor to get me to call a West Omaha electrician. Only a midtown electrician could truly understand knob-and-tube I thought, but I’m very glad I became more open-minded. Electric Express responded quickly, honored my desire to disturb the least amount of plaster possible and the invoice was very reasonable. Calling a West O vendor was hard, recommending one is far easier thanks to Electric Express’ ability to wire a screening room and a 2nd floor laundry into a hundred+ year old home."

"I used RSM to repair rotted wood on my porches, stain the shake shingles, and paint the trim. They did a fabulous job. One of the decorative capitals on my front porch columns had been badly damaged and was beyond repair. RSM contacted the country's leading expert on porch restoration and learned how to make a mold from one of my surviving capitals and then cast a new one. The 'get' old home restoration. I can't rave about them enough."

HVAC / Boilers

Blankman Services

"It would be hard for me not to use Joe Blankman for my HVAC needs even if he wasn’t amazing at heating and cooling. He grew up in midtown, his business is just down the street from me, AND he grew up playing in my house with the previous owners’ kids. Luckily Joe is a wizard at HVAC for old homes. Although I always felt Blankman’s pricing was reasonable, when needing a new system I felt I needed to get more than one bid. The other company looked at the condenser outside the house and gave me a cost, he even never asked to go inside. Although Joe’s been in my home many times he visited again to take a fresh look before finalizing a plan and price for a new system. He asked what I like and don’t like about the existing HVAC and what was important to me. He cared about finding the right solution because he knows he’ll be the one maintaining it for many years into the future. His price was still more reasonable than the other vendor. I recommended Blankman to a client who called me later to thank me. “He was a thousand dollars less than the other guy, I hired him on the spot!” That’s part of why I recommend Joe to clients, he makes me look like a hero to those who get to know him."

"DON’T REPLACE YOUR ORIGINAL WINDOWS!!! Not only does it do irreparable harm to your home and get you on the constant window replacement cycle, it isn’t at all necessary. Instead install great quality storm windows that are designed to be appropriate to your vintage home. We’re very lucky to have someone who crafts just those windows. I kept the surviving original storms in my home and replaced the failing newer storms with wood framed storms from Spencer Works. My heating bill plummeted and my home looks just like old."
