Door & Window Restoration
Urbanboatworks specializes in door and window restoration, repair, refinishing and replacement. We evaluate your needs on a window by window, door by door basis. We will reconstruct and refinish an original or build new to the original specifications. We build new custom doors and windows, screens and storm windows as well as replicate historic doors and windows. We also fit antiqued salvaged doors to your opening, as well as make doors from salvaged woods. Our doors and windows are handcrafted with mortise and tenon joinery. We use marine paints for abrasion resistance and durability.
We address painted shut windows, broken sash cords, locks that are not lined up, weatherstripping with swedish silicon, sill repair, rot consolidation with epoxy and old growth woods, repair and replace hardware and reglaze and install new glass. brightwork & varnish, interior and exterior stripping and painting.
If you need storm window repair or new storms built email or call for an appointment.
Note that buying manufactured new replacement windows can not often be repaired and are installed in the opening you already have- thus diminishing the size of the window and giving less light. Old windows, when properly restored and maintained are just as efficient ( with storms) and are the jewelry of your facade.
