WOOD COMPONENT RESTORATION
Stabilization and Component Replacement
Our historic window services include stabilizing lose joints or even replacement of parts.
Sash Stabilization and Structural Repairs
Great care is taken to rebuild or reconstruct the sash joint using wood epoxy polyurethane glue and wooden dowels to re-stabilize the sash joints. The sashes are then squared, and clamped in place, where they'll stay overnight in preparation for the next day’s process.
Deteriorated Components Replaced
Our craftsmen fabricate custom replacement sash components, replicating profiles, sizes, and shapes of the existing parts.
Wood Epoxy Repairs and Wood Fillers
Using liquid epoxy and a variety of techniques, we can repair surface cracks, gouges, missing sections, and broken profiles.
Once restored, a window can be more durable and weather resistant than when it was originally constructed.
When the sills are in need of repair, our crews follow strict guidelines for the sill restoration. Existing paint must be removed from the wood sill, taking it down to bare wood. We do this up each side of the frame jamb for at least 6".
We'll apply wood epoxy. All checks and gouges in the sill are filled, sanded smooth, and primed in preparation for painting. If required, we complete the same procedures on the frames and wood trim on the exterior of the window, as well.
