Why Restore Instead of Replace?
Old windows were originally made to last forever. They were constructed with quality components meant to be maintained and repaired. We've restored windows that were built in the late 1800's that were in better serviceable condition than modern windows that were installed in the 21st century.
Don’t let window replacement companies who boast that their windows are maintenance free fool you. Maintenance free means that their windows cannot be maintained and will end up in a landfill (or dumped into the ocean) within the next 20 years.
If you are concerned about the environment and are considering new windows, then repair and restoration is the only option for sensible sustainability. Plastic windows are not good for the environment and the packaging alone for an average house of new windows will fill a small dump truck with trash. Add to that the extreme amount of VOC's released during manufacturing, and the planned obsolescence of new products, that on average will have to be replaced within seven to thirteen years, and it's easy to conclude that repair and restoration is the only earth friendly choice.
Most old and historic windows have been in service for 100 years or more. They deteriorate from, not only harsh climate conditions, but lack of maintenance and neglect. With restoration, repairs and regular maintenance, the life of old wood windows can be extended for another 100 years.
