Learning About Historical Window Replacement and Materials

Hello, my name is Valencia. Welcome to my website about windows. I want to share information about sourcing period-specific windows for your historical home. In many locations, historical societies will only issue renovation permits once the homeowner proves the materials are accurate to the build date of that structure. The windows must look and function exactly as they would new in that historical time period. My site will contain information about ordering, installing and maintaining these windows. I hope you will use the information on my site to keep your historical home in great shape through the decades. Thanks for visiting.
