Traditional colonial homes often feature two windows evenly spaced on each side of the door and three on the second level, with one centered above the door. ... White exterior windows are often paired with white or light colored shutters marking the essence of a Colonial style home. Colonial Wood Windows are rectangular and evenly spaced across the front of the home. Colonial windows also are traditionally double-hung and multi-paned, with between nine or twelve panes per sash.
We offer a variety of glass types in any shape you need including; highly efficient and space saving Spacia Vacuum Insulated Glass, regular insulated glass, monolithic glass, and wavy glass.
There have only been a handful of predominant sash molding profiles from 1865 on. The most common profile and our standard is the “Roman Ogee”, while other profiles are available.
Our use of insulated glass, our own Window Logic weather stripping system, and high quality constant force balancing systems provide the efficiency of modern windows with historical accuracy.
We maintain historical aesthetics by setting glass 7/8″ deep into the sash from the interior to create a shadow line that helps provide character. Most modern manufacturers ignore this crucial detail.
Both the exterior and interior of Colonial style homes are traditionally arranged according to strict symmetry and proportion. Beginning with the centrally located entrance, hallway and staircase around which the interior rooms are positioned. Roof lines are often decorated with dentils on more decorative homes. Pedimented dormers, flatened columns on each side of the door, and shutters also often define the Colonial homestyle.
