In December 2019, we started working on repairing the Tavern’s windows. We started with the old sashes and weights. The sashes were disassembled, re-glued/re-assembled, sanded, primed and re-glazed. About 200 panes of glass were purchased. Where possible, we used old, bubble glass. All of the old weights were reused. The old screen frames with metal trim are intact. The original window latches are intact.
After the inside windows were installed, a storm window was designed, built and installed. Custom frames were made in redwood, 3/4″ thick insulated glass was installed and aluminum cladding was powder coated and used on the outer surface to hold the insulated glass firmly in place. These storm windows are commercial grade, will protect the old inner sashes and should last ‘forever’.
