Care of Old Windows
People often ask whether I like new work or restoration best. I think it may be an even split. Old windows are studies in styles, colors, and materials that stretch my perceptions of what can be beautiful - of what is possible.
I learn a lot from them. The work is always different depending on the window. Some get flattened and re-puttied, others need replacement pieces for serious breaks. The worst ones are taken apart and re-assembled. It takes time, care, and fine craftsmanship to do right by these old windows and get them back in shape for another hundred years.
If you have an old window that needs attention, send me some pictures or give me a call. We can set up a meeting to look at the glass in person, assess its needs, and determine the best course of action.
