Historic Wood Window Repair

The state of Connecticut has more than its share of truly historic eighteenth and early nineteenth century wood window sash, as you can see from this Portfolio of work, but it also has a full share of Victorian era and early twentieth century wood window sash. We restore all existing historic fabric, when possible, and produce reproduction wood window sash, when necessary. In general, we can say that the early period windows were less standardized and showed more local variations in style and profiles than the later era. Regardless, whatever period of traditional double hung windows you have, Stephen C. Marshall, LLC has the experience to restore them to their original condition and to their optimum performance.
