High quality wood casement windows were installed during construction of this fine, custom built home. In spite of careful attention to detail and an ongoing investment of time and money the owners were losing the battle to save their wood framed windows. "John's Window Capping" was able to restore the windows to the original operating condition and add value by eliminating the ongoing maintenance requirements. These windows will continue to provide the comfort, energy efficiency and investment the homeowners anticipated at the time they purchased these windows. After several years of observing ongoing deterioration the homeowners are no longer concerned with the condition of their windows. They are now able to invest their time and resources in other projects around their home.
Many of the windows in this home were in a state of failure. The condition of the units pictured here were typical for this home. The windows were quickly becoming a liability instead of a valuable asset.
The lack of an effective seal against the glass was allowing moisture to penetrate the wood and was hastening the deterioration of these windows. Frequently when a sash is in this condition it is no longer square and no longer fits properly into the window frame, the result is a lack of energy efficiency. In extreme cases the sealed unit will fail entirely due to a lack of stability. This necessitates replacement of the sealed unit, an additional expense and inconvenience. "John's Window Capping" successfully completed a restoration and all of the sash and frames in this home were saved.
The sill on this bow window was beginning to deteriorate but the cladding and top quality caulking will prevent further damage. Replacement windows are expensive and result in a mis-match with the original windows. Restoration and cladding, instead of replacement, is advised.
This bow window will exceed it's life expectancy due to the protection provided by the cladding and high quality caulking.
