Referred to us by a resident owner who was a former client of ours, this Beacon Hill condo association had determined to remove and dispose of all original wood window sash throughout the building and to replace it with a modern plastic replacement sash. In order to present an alternative, we documented instances where our clients had had to replace sash of this type after only 15 years and asked them to consider that their existing sash, if restored by us, would last many times that long. Concerned about cost, they requested a quote for the restoration spec. When they heard that restoration would actually be cheaper, and that they could keep their beautiful wood windows, they accepted our proposal.
We specified a mix of mechanical and complete in shop sash restoration, as necessary. Cleary and Son, Inc. always strives to match the solution to the problem, rather than to impose a one size fits all program. We also performed restoration and painting of the exterior window sills and trim and installation of 174 storm windows. All work was done with the property manager, Street and Company.
