Question

Wood Window Replacement


Sorry - I should have said that we are restoring this wonderful architectural gem - which is why we chose to go with wooden windows after weighing the other options.

Did you look at anything clad or a hybrid (i.e. fiberglass with wood interior)?

Thank you so much for your suggestion. We did look into other options but anything else would greatly change the look of the home. We have decided to go with a professional window company that is well versed in these rare mid century homes to restore/replace.

Thank you again for taking the time to answer!
