Restore or Replace Your Windows? Do the Math!

Historic windows can often be rehabbed and continue in use another century or more.

Check out this free tool to do a comparison of the life-cycle costs to rehab vs. replace your historic wood windows. It was was created by Preservation Resources, Inc., and was made possible by an Historic Preservation Fund Grant administered by the Kansas State Historical Society. https://hutchgov.com/1513/Cost-Comparison-Tool

Often, your old neglected and deteriorated wood windows can be restored and made as good as the day they were new. Historic wood windows were made to be repairable – unlike modern windows. With maintenance, these windows can last another century or more. Replacement windows would be good for 30 years and then would have to be replaced again. And, most window restoration firms are local companies who employ local residents, keeping your hard-earned money in the community. Explore options for restoring your windows before buying the sales pitch for new ones.
