Window Restoration

Old House Authority
Historic Window Restoration Services

There is no substitute for your original windows. Beyond the beauty of their unique proportions, there is the pleasure of viewing the world through wavy, antique glass. Old growth wood and traditional joinery outperform today's quickly harvested wood, whether handcrafted or mechanically stapled together. Your original old windows will even outlast vinyl replacements, which are made from non-renewable resources, are environmentally unkind, and age poorly.


  • Several window sash are removed at a time and replaced with plywood or foam board (we can also provide custom made storm windows, which will not detract from the appearance of your house while your windows are being repaired)
  • Glass and glazing are removed
  • Sash are stripped of paint, sanded and primed
  • Windows are reglazed, and original glass reinstalled. If any glass is missing or broken, we can replace with antique glass
  • Sash are primed a second time
  • Metal pulleys are removed and cleaned; jambs striped, primed and repainted (on site)

Prices are based on the number of lights (panes) and sashes (the framework in which the panes or lights are set). A double hung window has two sashes: one that slides down and an inside one that goes up.
