Owning a historic home is a very rewarding type of ownership. The beauty of our nation’s past is captured in the architecture and elements of the building. Caring for and maintaining the historic integrity of the home is also a large part of ownership. The homes exterior is one of the most telling signs of a historic landmark, and its windows are critical to the look and feel. Many historic towns and districts have laws governing historic window replacement. Whether that comes down to the materials that a window can be (no composite or vinyl materials allowed) or the actual aesthetics of the windows, restoring or replacing historic windows can oftentimes seem like a daunting task.
