Restoration Projects

It takes longer to restore a window than it does to construct a new window from scratch. We take time to analyze the existing structure and construction techniques used by the original artisans for the window in question. Differing construction techniques can greatly alter a window’s final dimensions. We also conduct an analysis of why the window failed – it would be a negligent construction practice to restore a window and then place it back into a setting that may have contributed to its demise. Window deconstruction requires great patience and care to ensure no further damage happens to the glass fabric during window disassembly. In reassembling a window, we do not modify or alter the window components in any way; all construction practices are reversible.
