Don't want to refurbish it yourself? Let us do it for you. Whether you're buying from us or just have a window you need done, we can do it. Please note that refurbishment will not make a vintage part new. Most parts are 30 to 60 years old and have the wear 'n' tear to prove it.
What we do:
- Clean the nooks & crannies
- Clean the glass
- Do a basic polish on the outwardly visible aluminum. This probably will not remove any pre-existing large or deep flaws such as: deep scratches, scrapes, scuffs, discolorations. You will need further polishings to remove these if you like.
- Replace window spacers
- Replace weatherstripping
- Replace glazing with vinyl if available or with Sikaflex or similar product
- Remove etc rivets left on the frame
- Replace any corroded steel hardware
- Attempt to straighten basic bends in metal if needed
- Ships in approximately 2 weeks to 3 months depending on our workload, amount of windows, and window requirements.
What we don't do:
- Remove very deep scratches, dings, scuffs, etc.
- Straighten metal/fabricate

- Replace glass or plexi(we can assist in sourcing & installing for an additional fee)
