Cosmetic Restoration

Cosmetic restoration returns your windows to their original look and condition.
  • The sashes are removed from the window frames and taken to the shop.

  • The old putty and glass is removed; old paint stripped to the bare wood.

  • Repairs are made to the sash using epoxy or replacement components if damage is severe. (see examples)

  • The sash are sanded smooth and primed for finish painting.

  • The original glass is bedded and reputtied. Any broken panes are replaced with period recovered glass.

  • Two finish coats of paint interior and exterior are applied and the sash are now ready to be reinstalled.

  • When the restored sash are installed and the mechanical restoration completed you have a window system that will last for many more decades with only minor maintenance.
