Federal style homes are often made of brick and feature many symmetrically aligned windows across the home's exterior. An elliptical fan-shaped window, sits atop with the front door, with long, rectangular windows on either side. A Palladian window is also placed above the door to provide further symmetry.
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.
Federal style homes were constructed as a showcase of wealth with grand ornate features around the front door. The front door is also usually framed by tall, slender columns or pilasters. Iron railings and curved steps also frequently lead to the home's entrance.
