Landmark buildings are meant to last for centuries, why would you put in a window that might only last 10 years?
Custom Window originally made its name by producing innovative, historically accurate windows for landmark buildings. Our reputation for historic windows is unsurpassed.
Here is how we provide you with our most innovative, highest performing, historically accurate windows on the market today:
Historically Accurate Sightlines
In almost every case, Custom Window can precisely replicate the original sightlines, right down to the steel putty glaze shape.
We can replicate nearly any historic sightline in a true divided lite window. This makes it easier to:
• Get tax credits for your building.
• Obtaining tax credits usually means providing a historically accurate window with modern performance ability. Custom Window has done this on countless projects. We can anticipate most of the issues in advance, helping to avoid complications.
• Gain approval from historic districts.
• Custom Window will work with you to ensure that the window provided is approved by any presiding historic districts.
True Divided Lites
Historically accurate windows typically have true divided lites. Applied grid is a modern attempt to simulate a historic window. To be historically accurate, you need individual panes of glass separated by true divided lite muntins.
The Custom Window Building Process
Every window uses our proprietary building process, so you know that the window is quoted accurately, designed intelligently and built precisely.
Every historic building has its own story and its own special requirements. Custom Window has experience in these areas and can help make the process smooth and efficient.
