Our thorough steel window restoration program includes disassembly and old coating and rust removal on all surfaces. Our restoration program uses high-tech blast stripping equipment, metal epoxy restoration, grinding and sanding, welding and fabrication, glazing, and new high performance primer with rust prevention and finish paints.
Our spray paint equipment produces high-end factory finishes. We use all paint systems that are specified or high-performance paints and stains. We can custom match paints and stains. We have our own stain mixing laboratory for custom stain matching. We can faux finish where required.
Our non-chemical paint stripping process involves the use of different light waves at different distances, durations, and intensities. We can provide just paint stripping for elements for your projects as well as our other services. We are proud to add our new Green industrial stripping station to our extensive Green practice list.
For steel window stripping, our two blast cabinets remove old coatings and rust. Next, the blast media goes through a separation process where it is recycled and the old coatings can be collected for proper disposal.
All paint shavings are collected in proper containers and are removed by a licensed hauler.
We can restore any wood or steel furniture that can be brought to our facility. This includes institutional furniture, pews, tables, chairs, and the like. We will use the same green process and the same restoration methods we provide for our other services. This includes finishes and structural strengthening.
Many glazing options are available for your historic windows. Traditionalists can retain their existing glass and have either a putty glazing, or a custom milled wood glazing stop. Low E Coatings, Insulating Glass Units, Gas Filled IG Units, Safety Glazing, and Blast Resistant Laminated Glass options are also available. Whatever the application, Restoration Works, Inc. maintains the original shadow lines on the exterior for meeting visual historic requirements. All of our muntin sash applications are true divided lite. We also offer traditional and custom storm windows.
We can restore any wood or steel architectural element that can be brought to our facility. This includes pillars, crown molding, baseboards, other trim, bas reliefs, and other decorative pieces. We use the same Green restoration processes for architectural elements as we do doors and windows.
