Victorian properties often featured intricate features such as bay sash windows, with a large picture window featuring the classic vertical bar. Bay windows remain one of the most recognizable building features from the Victorian era to this day. The asymmetrically designed structures also featured many vertically oriented double hung windows sometimes toped with half round picture windows with ornate muntin designs. Usually at least one complete circular picture window can be found on the second or third story. Sliding windows can also be common across the Victorian home style as well

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.
