Vintage Window Restoration


This severely neglected sash will be revived with wood and jointery repairs, reglazed with tempered glass and its strength and beauty protected with high quality refinishing.


Another batch of vintage sash for restoration.

Examining paint layers.  This yellow was a popular interior color at the turn of the century.



We will preserve this antique sash rather than replace.  Modern methods can extend its life for many more years.



Exterior trim opened up for a replacement.  1912 residence with c.1980s aluminum window.


People with traditional wood windows know how special their windows are, but sometimes these windows need a little (or a lot of) TLC to perform as they should.  We provide complete restoration services including hardware and sash cord replacement, re-glazing with a variety of glass options, mechanical adjustments, high-quality painting and refinishing and complete rebuilding of double-hung, sliding, awning, fixed and casement windows.  We can replace vintage single-strength glass with double-strength glass, tempered glass, authentic salvaged glass in limited quantities when available, and more.
