Storefronts and Commercial Buildings

Owners of commercial buildings lean towards restoration to take advantage of tax benefits, as well as the fact that restoration can be more cost effective than new windows. Restoration is always the best option for keeping the character of the building. Restoration can also be less intrusive to tenants than wholesale replacement. Interior trim can be reused, saving thousands.

Private Residences

Owners of historic homes take pride in the history in their home. Whether because of the historic glass, or the old growth, virgin timber, or simply the comparatively short lifespan of modern manufactured windows, many homeowners choose window restoration over replacement.

Energy grants, restoration grants, and tax freeze incentives are available to defray the cost of window restoration.

Multifamily, Condominiums, Mid and High-rise

Homeowners associations struggle with window replacement by only a unit or two at a time. After hours and weeks of research they always come to the same conclusion. The only windows that look like the original are the originals. Each tenant / owner may not have the budget to replace their windows at the same time as everyone else. With window restoration, restored windows look exactly the same as the units who have not yet been restored. No more mismatched windows by unit. All the windows look uniform on the entire building.

Window restoration at a glance:

  • EPOXY REPAIRS are done with scientifically formulated epoxies that match the thermal expansion coefficient of the wood to give the strongest repair possible.
  • WOOD REPLACEMENT is done only when absolutely necessary and exactly matching the original.
  • GLASS RETENTION OR REPLACEMENT is available for all types of glass. We can update your windows with insulated glass, retain original glass, install restoration glass, even install antique glass from our warehouse.
  • HARDWARE can be re-plated, or polished and lacquered or simply stripped, lubricated and reinstalled. New restoration hardware can be applied, or exact historic replicas cast to replace missing hardware.

Please note that this process is modified to fit the needs and goals of the individual project and client.
