Why Restore Windows Instead of Replacing Them?

20TH CENTURY WINDOWS AND THEIR VALUE TODAY

95% of all windows built since 1865 can be repaired, regardless of the material used to make the window. Let’s look at different periods when your homes were built from 1900 to present day, the popular window styles of the time, and their benefits:

1900-1960- Wood windows -double hung, sliding, casement, awning, hopper and pocket windows. Wood windows were the most popular type of window for 60 years because of their depth and beauty.  They could also be painted any color, or stained to bring out the beauty of the wood grain, while matching the mood of any home.

BENEFITS OF KEEPING HISTORIC WINDOWS FROM PRE-WORLD WAR II HOMES

1. Quality: Your windows have irreplaceable old growth wood, are joined together with craftsmanship no longer done, and sometimes even have wavy glass.

    • Old growth wood comes from slow growth trees, which are more resistant to decay and termites than today’s fast growth, soft wood. They are of very high quality  by today’s standards, which was taken for granted back then, and having lasted 100 years so far, when restored are more weather resistant, and will outlast the replacements available today.

REPAIRING YOUR WINDOWS SAVES MONEY 

Looking at aluminum and vinyl windows, Angies List found the average cost of a window today to be $729. Replacement windows range in cost from several hundred to over a thousand dollars, depending on whether you choose vinyl or aluminum windows and additional features, like awnings, glass types, styles, grid patterns and shapes.
