Save Money: Wood windows can usually be restored and weatherized for less cost than replacing them with high-quality wood windows.

Save Energy: Historic windows can be weatherized to be as energy efficient as replacement windows.

Save the Environment: By repairing, you save your old windows from being thrown in the landfill, and once repaired, they can be maintained for the life of the building.  You also save the resources required to make new windows, which have a limited lifespan, and to transport them to your town.

Save History: Keeping your original windows preserves the  historic integrity and appearance of your home.
