Monte met with these Story City homeowners at the 2017 Des Moines, Home & Garden Show while working his shift. The homeowners recognized our name/logo from Job signs posted in their town from other Midwest Construction projects. They have also seen our Testimonial TV Spots that air and decided to stop in. Monte spoke with them, showed the features of the window, answered their questions and they all agreed to have Monte out for an exact cost.
The home was built in the 1920’s. It has the beautiful original woodwork and the original windows. Not to mention it also came with a set of wooden storm windows and screens to replace every spring and fall. The balance system in 1920 window technology consisted of a set of weights and pulleys hidden into the vertical jambs behind the wide interior and exterior casings. This left a big uninsulated cavity for air to infiltrate into causing cold and drafty windows. The original windows in the home had the same glass technology as the Ancient Egyptian’s, sand melted into glass, no Low E Coatings, no super spacer technology just plain old single pane glass!
With the advanced technology in vinyl building products and glass technology today’s consumers can get a custom built window that looks like wood to fit into the openings of a home built in the 1920’s. By having the windows custom built they were able to save all of the original interior trim. While the new windows are being installed the entire opening, including the wheel weight cavities will be insulated and sealed for air and water infiltration.
