Vertical rectangular windows are the most common shape featured in Craftsman type homes. However, smaller square windows are often used in upper story rooms. The low-pitched gabled roof of aCraftsman style house lends itself well to wide dormer windows.
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.
Craftsman homes represent a rejection of the Victorian movement. Craftsman homes are part of the larger "Arts and Crafts" Movement and typically feature natural building materials such as wood, stone, and brick. Built-in furniture and light fixtures were the key feature of Craftsman era homes. Built-in cabinets allowed the furnishings to be part of the architecture, ensuring design unity and economic use of space throughout an exposed beam open floor plan. Large fireplaces and large exterior chimneys are also a key feature that were used to symbolize the importance of family.
