Most buildings have been build before 1900. This means that the state of buildings depend heavily on the maintenance of former owners/inhabitants. If you’re planning to renovate in Amsterdam, we suggest you go with an construction company or contractor that has his roots in the city, like us. We know exactly what to expect in those old buildings and can therefore better estimate the amount of work that will go into a build.
Don’t let it scare you, but for some renovations or construction work you need to get approval from the municipality. No worries. Nanterre can take care of this for you. We’ve prepared many request and have never had any troubles in getting approval. Keep in mind that it can take a while before the municipality actually approves your build, so make sure you don’t wait too long.
As stated before buildings in Amsterdam are very old. The municipality likes to keep them in a good state and doesn’t let you change just anything. Especially changes on the outside can encounter some resistance.
