Don’t Replace. Restore Those Wood Framed Windows! Many owners of vintage homes believe that it is best to replace the original single pane wood framed windows with wood, plastic or metal framed double pane windows, citing energy efficiency as the major factor for the replacements. Back in the day (when the home was built) Homes where modified as the seasons changed. In the Spring, the home owner would remove the winter “Storm Windows” that where basically a wood framed glass window insert, and replace them with wood famed screened panels in preparation of the warm summer days. This was, and still is the equivalent of a double paned window without the cost. Additionally, double paned windows tend to leak after a period of time and have to be replaced down the road. I determined that building screens and storm windows for my home was much cheaper than the original and possible replacement cost of failed double paned windows. This winter, we plan to install the storm windows and hang heavy drapes over the interior windows. Kind of like putting snow tires on the car and shaking out the goose jacket before the winter weather rolls in.
