The Gothic homestyle was most prominent between the 1840s and 1870s. Gothic windows are often uniquely shaped with pointed arches and are a defining feature of the home. The pointed arch design is also usually carried out through the home's exterior doors as well. Steeply pitched roofs, prominent chimneys, and decorative gables are also defining exterior gothic features. Heirloom windows can create exact replicas of your pointed arch gothic windows that perform with modern efficiency.

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.
