Restoration Works, Inc.

The premier company nationwide for historic Window, Door, and Architectural Element restoration and preservation

Restoration Works Inc. maintains a spacious "State of the Art" restoration facility set up to easily handle large scale projects as well as smaller projects.  Our labeling, tracking, and organizational skills allow us to control projects and deliver them on time.  The work flows from station to station, which are all set up with appropriate equipment for historic work, implementing the latest cutting edge technology where possible.  We have excellent craftspeople, eight of whom have been with us for over 16 years, six over 10 years, and some newer skilled people.


Our restoration process maximizes the life of the window or door we are working on.  Each item is assessed at each stage for weaknesses or flaws.  Our restoration process gives the window or door everything it needs to bring it back to its original condition and then some.  We use high performance paints, sealants, glass, weatherstripping, and glazing materials.  There is nothing but quality that goes into our restored windows.


In addition, our restoration process incorporates many Green practices.  We believe in not only saving historic materials, but also, in our own small way, saving the environment as much as possible.
