Window Restoration

Old wood frame window Before restorationAn example of a wood and exterior paint finish window restoration seen here with this set of casement windows from an early 20th century mansion. For the most part, even after a century exposed to South Florida sun and rain, the condition of the wood was good and where it was not I could scarf in fresh wood. The architecture of the English Tudor cottage themed home- with cedar shake roof resembling thatch- consists of many odd-sized windows with hand-rolled glass panes.

The majority of the labor was to remove the loose paint and prep for the primer and latex topcoat. While that was being done I ordered the replacement glass from a specialty glass supplier by sending paper templates of each required piece. Another important part of this project was finding the replacement hinges -and latches- in the right size and metal, in this case 3”x3” solid brass. The internet makes that easier now when before I had to hope I had a catelog  or Thomas Register.
