Bowed Windows


Bowed windows are certainly among a window maker's higher challenges. For this 16th Street residence we handled a great variety of work. We made reproduction bowed sash and replacement parts. We re-machined bowed sash for insulating glass. We reset leaded glass in bowed sash, we installed metal weather strip on bowed sills. Most of our jobs are not necessarily as big, but richly varied and we're proud to do them.

We have restored, reproduced, and retrofitted old bowed sash with new insulating glass. We have reliable sources for bowed glass and find the challenge of this work exciting. The photo below shows a new meeting rail of heart pine made to fit the historic styles of an historic top sash. In August of 2005 we took delivery of a glass kiln and have begun experiments in form work and glass heating in order that we can produce bowed and ornamental glass in house.
