The Montréal Architectural Heritage Campaign (MAHC) is an annual promotional event to raise public awareness about the wealth of the built heritage on the island of Montréal and about the importance of preserving this legacy. Created by the Ville de Montréal in collaboration with Héritage Montréal, and carried out for several years in partnership with the Laurentian Bank, the MAHC is in its 23th edition.
In the Heritage and Quality Renovation website, recognized experts propose a range of information and useful tips that will help you take good care of these precious and decorative architectural elements on your property’s façade. These beautiful elements, when well maintained, are always a source of pride for an owner.
This guide will show how to invest wisely in the maintenance and preservation of your home without spending huge amounts of money. Remember that a well-maintained house whose façade has retained its original architectural characteristics will always have a better resale value than one that has been neglected or that has lost its heritage elements because alterations were made to follow passing styles. Real estate market experts confirm this fact further in this guide…
With regular maintenance and astute interventions, your building can retain or recover its original beauty and thus contribute to the improvements of the city’s streets and neighbourhoods.
