ASHEVILLE Window RESTORATION
Logan Restoration specializes in historic window preservation. We are dedicated to the conservation of historic architectural elements and the utilization of environmentally friendly materials and methods.
With the installation of weather stripping and storm windows the efficiency of historic wood windows can surpass that of cheap vinyl replacements. The original-growth wood windows can last another hundred years with proper restoration and care.
We offer complete and partial restorations. I will personally assess your windows and work with you to find the best option for your property and budget. The goal of restoration is to bring back the windows original function and beauty, while preserving it for the future generation.
A typical full restoration will include:
Sashes removed from frame
Jambs and frame stripped of built-up paint using Lead-Safe practices
Jambs and frames primed and painted
Replace sash cords and tune-up pulleys
De-Glaze sash completely using steam techniques
Removal/cleaning of all glass
Strip sash to bare wood using Lead-Safe practices
Repair any structural or aesthetic damage to sash
Bedding of glass in Sarco glazing compound for rattle resistance and efficiency
Application of a finish of your choice on interior and exterior
Installation of sash to operate as originally crafted
The vinyl window business has deceived a number of people over the last two decades with their replacement campaign. Unfortunately, 1000’s of perfectly stable wood windows were taken to landfills across America and replaced with plastic windows that will last about 15 years.
