Why Custom-Built Windows Are Ideal for Historic Homes

If you are the owner of a historic home, the prospect of investing in replacement windows may seem daunting to you because of the need to maintain your home’s architectural authenticity. Fortunately, at Renewal by Andersen® of Portland, we have lots of experience replacing windows on historical homes, and we always recommend going the custom route. Here’s why.

Why Custom-Built Windows Are Ideal for Historic Homes

Recreating the Original Window Designs Accurately

One of the reasons historic windows are valuable is their rarity. You’ll be hard-pressed to find brand-new products identical to the look of your classic units. To a trained eye, the aesthetic inconsistencies between vintage windows and bad replicas are easily distinguishable.

Custom-built replacement windows are different. Their anatomy may be totally dissimilar to that of their predecessors, but they can pass the litmus test.

Renewal by Andersen of Portland offers numerous interior-exterior frame color combinations to preserve the beauty of your historic windows. We can also apply any grille pattern to the glass and install the pieces between the panes to create the look of divided lights realistically.

Ensuring Proper Sizing

Stock windows come in different forms and shapes, but they’re limited to standard sizes. It’s highly probable that you won’t find units that match the dimensions of your existing openings.

Size is never an issue when it comes to custom-made windows. Renewal by Andersen of Portland makes sure that each replacement unit fits within 1/16th inch of the opening. With our products, you won’t have to resize the holes in your walls or deal with wide gaps around windows.

Saving Money

A start-to-finish window replacement project can save you money on many levels. Buying custom-made units directly from a manufacturer that also sends an in-house installation crew ensures proper workmanship. If you work with only one company, it’s easier to make your contractor accountable for errors.

Turn to Renewal by Andersen of Portland to retain the unmistakable charm of your historic home and to enjoy the unique benefits of modern windows. Call us at (503) 419-3960 now to schedule your FREE consultation in Lake Oswego, Salem or Portland, OR.
