Are you a homeowner with pre-1960 original windows?  Are you being told your windows are "shot", or that because the ropes are broken, or the window is painted shut that it can't be repaired?  Are you being told you'll see great energy savings if you replace your windows, but your good sense thinks otherwise?

Or are you the person responsible for a school building or other civic resource and have a nagging feeling that replacing the original windows will erode the historic value, to say nothing of the beauty, of your public resource?  

You have come to the right place!  

We can help you sort through the issues of restoration vs replacement.  We can share studies on the energy (and cost) efficiency of original windows, when paired with a storm.  And we have lists of resources in your area who can help you get the job done in a way that preserves the beauty, integrity and yes, charm of your home or school or re purposed factory.


Are you an architect, builder, realtor or restorer?  

Do you need information to help your clients make the right decision about windows?  

Do you need good specs so that you get accurate, comparable proposals?  

Do you, as a window restoration specialist, need information from your fellow restorers or a new source of window supplies?  

You have come to the right place!

Our library of resources, studies, books, etc, as well as our directory of resources will get you started and make you a valued partner with your clients in doing the best thing for their properties.
