Historic Renovation // Part 1: Trimline Wood Windows

Historic Renovation // Part 1: Trimline Wood Windows

Renovation projects are certainly an exciting and noble undertaking but they can sometimes also be stressful, especially if you are restoring a historic property. Whether you’re looking to restore the original charm of the building or are mandated by the city or town to meet certain preservation requirements, it is much easier than you think to find the products you need.

At Horner Millwork the members of our Architectural Services Group are experts in historic renovation and preservation. If you are restoring the windows, doors, or mouldings in a historic home or commercial building, we have the products and knowledge to make sure the project is completed successfully. Below is the first of a multi-part series on historic preservation. In the coming weeks we will be exploring the different nuances of historic renovation for both residential and commercial projects as they relate to the building’s windows, doors, and mouldings.

HISTORICALLY ACCURATE WINDOWS

TrimLine’s Liberty Wood Series Windows are used on Historic Certified Rehabilitation projects sanctioned by the National Park Service. The U.S. Department of the Interior National Park Service Technical Preservation Services offers great resources and guidelines for anyone wanting to preserve, rehabilitate, restore, or reconstruct a historic building. The program emphasizes the importance of identifying, retaining, and preserving windows, including their function, materials, and any decorative features that are important in defining the overall historic character of the building. For lots more information on the standards set by the National Park Service we invite you to explore their website.

PRO TIP

Preserve historical accuracy and architecturally correct proportions by always keeping glazing lites vertical. No matter the window type or opening size, horizontal panes of glass will appear squat and uncomfortable.
