Historic Window Restoration

Nothing lasts forever, and even our stately buildings - architectural monuments wear out over time.

Over time, the windows installed in them, cease to perform the necessary functions - reliable protection from cold, wind and noise from the street. In order to restore all the necessary functions of the window, and at the same time to reproduce the former architectural style of the building, you need to use the restoration service from our company.

Window restoration is needed not only for architectural monuments, but with time and for all houses built before 1990. The windows installed during the construction of such houses not only ceased to protect against noise and cold, but also lost a decent appearance.

The problems of old windows are primarily in blowing through the entire perimeter of the window, in the failed fittings, peeling paint, both outside and inside, and in a battered and worn-out window frame. All these problems can be eliminated during the restoration of the window.

Restoration of wooden windows is a job that will require various professional tools to carry out all the restoration work carefully - grinding, painting, replacing fittings, gaskets, and so on.

Of course, not any window may be subject to restoration. It is necessary to examine the condition of your old window - check for the number of rotten parts in the frame, cracks and other defects. And depending on how badly the window is damaged, make decisions about the possibility of its restoration.

Our company offers the manufacture and installation of "historical windows" for the restoration and reconstruction of cultural heritage objects.

Our "historical windows" are made with all the features of the architectural style of the building and meet all the requirements and established standards. We officially received a license to carry out activities to preserve cultural heritage objects (historical and cultural monuments).

Each window is exclusive

We make "historical windows" by the individual order. Before starting our work, our specialists study in detail the object being restored, and the features of its architecture. Based on this, the manufacturing technology, the appropriate profile and materials are chosen. Then design the window and create an exclusive sketch. Only as a result of such painstaking preparatory work is it possible to recreate the window designs in their original form so that they correspond to the project of restoration work at the historical object.

The new window completely repeats the appearance of the former - the color, shape, light transmission, the type of wood, the shape and color of the fittings, and if it is, the sprites, gratings and much more.

Handmade windows

Most of the works in the production of «historical windows» masters of our company perform manually. All specialists are high-level professionals who have extensive experience in working with such objects.

Our workshops are equipped with professional machines and tools that help professionals do the job quickly and efficiently.

Materials and designs meet all requirements

As a material, we use a three-layer bar of pine and larch. Design - with one or two threads of glazing, separate with a wide window box. It consists of two parts of the valves, each of which can be installed separately.

We pay special attention to architectural locking accessories. We use various types of decorated fittings - handles, hinges, bolts, wraps, caps, which bring windows closer to the historical look.

Extensive experience with historical objects

You can view the completed orders for the restoration of windows in historic buildings in the gallery of our company. We know how to put in order even the oldest, dilapidated and unreliable construction.
