Historic Wood Windows

 

Restore, Rebuild, or Replace

Historic wood windows have a certain character about them that’s hard to replicate. For an older home that needs new windows, it can be frustrating to find out that everyone offers window replacement services instead of restoration and repair services.
At Folkers, we understand the importance of preserving your home’s unique character as well as the architectural significance of historic wood windows and doors. We offer unparalleled options for historic wood windows, from repairs through complete rebuilds of your existing windows, and even complete custom fabrication by local craftsmen.
Our goal is to provide excellent service, whether through repair, restoration, or replacement. We work hard to make sure your home maintains its charm and character that you love while providing high-quality replacement windows.
  • Repair When Possible
  • Restorations and Rebuilds
  • Complete Historically Accurate Replacements as Needed

Will My New Windows Look Out Of Place If I Replace Them?

When installed properly, your new windows will not look out of place. Our craftsmen work hard to maintain as much of the original wood and framing as possible to avoid changing the exterior too much. Our craftsmen can even custom fabricate older-styled framing to match your existing look. While others might say “just deal with it”, we don’t! Don’t sacrifice the look of your home for new windows. At Folkers, we help you keep your old-school look while having the best of both worlds.

How Hard Is It To Restore Historic Wood Windows?

  • We use as much of your original wood windows as possible when rebuilding.
  • We use high-grade hardwoods, not cheap builder grade.
  • Craftsmen trained in Europe to truly understand Old World techniques
  • We follow the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation
  • Historical accuracy matters to us.
  • Preservation is our number one objective.
  • Locally designed in the Church Street East historic district.
  • Pella wood replacement windows also available
  • We work with your historic neighborhood board to ensure compliance.

 

There are certain guidelines that must be followed when restoring windows. The U.S. Secretary of the Interior’s Historic Buildings Standards provide a detailed explanation for preserving historic wood windows. Most companies are not equipped or trained to work with windows of historic significance. As such, they can do more damage than good. In most cases, they’ll simply suggest replacement. At Folkers, we focus on repair and restoration first, replacement last. If the windows must be replaced, we’ll do our best to preserve as much of the original window as possible.
You don’t need to hire an expensive restoration specialist to get the luster back in your historic wood windows. Folkers offers authentic wood windows that carry the luster and splendor as if they were manufactured decades ago. You’ll gain the historic look, but with modern energy efficiency advantages.

 

Is It Better To Replace My Older Windows?

While newer windows have better efficiency ratings, they will look different from the older styled windows. That being said, if you are looking to improve the performance of your windows and lower your utility bill, then you should replace your windows. If you are concerned with maintaining the historic integrity of your home or building, it might be better to repair or restore your existing windows.
