Residence
Yorktown, New York

For a new home in Yorktown Heights, NY, Seekircher Steel Window supplied all of the vintage windows and doors. The steel frames were stripped and primed by hand in our shop. After new leaded glass inserts were installed and putty glazed, all windows and doors were finish-coated, then delivered to the home for installation.

Residence
New York, New York

The original Williams & Williams steel casement windows in numerous apartments in one of New York’s most storied apartment buildings, The Beresford, have been completely refurbished- looking and working much as they did many decades ago.  Our scope of work includes removing all operable windows from the building, labeling each sash and installing temporary protection in each opening.  While the operable sash are restored off site, the frames and fixed portions are done in place.  The hardware is removed and refinished, windows are stripped of paint, glazing and glass, and all steel is primed, re-glazed and finish painted.  The refinished hardware is then installed and each window is re-installed in the building.

Residence
Norwalk, Connecticut

Homeowners in Norwalk, Connecticut removed their historic steel casement windows to be refurbished off site, in our shop. After being stripped of glass, putty, and paint, structurally unsound sections of steel were removed and replaced with matching sections of vintage steel.  The windows were then primed, re-glazed and finish painted. In addition, the original brass hardware was also cleaned and polished. Upon completion, we delivered the windows to the homeowners where they were re-installed.

Residence
Bronxville, New York

After living with substandard “replacement” windows in their classic English Tudor for several years, homeowners in Bronxville, New York, decided to replace them with vintage Hope’s steel casement windows from our collection. The steel frames had new leaded glass inserts installed and glazed and were finish-coated a bronze color typical of the period.  Likely original to the home when it was built, the vintage Hope’s windows dramatically transformed the home.

Residence
New York, New York

In the penthouse of a midtown Manhattan apartment building, the Hope’s steel casement windows in the sunroom were some of the only remaining original windows in the building.  They were covered with decades of paint, glazing and caulk and once stripped, we uncovered sections of structural steel in need of replacement. The severely deteriorated steel was cut out, replacement sections weldedand the windows were realigned to operate properly.  Once the mechanical work was completed, the windows could be re-glazed and finish painted, all in place.

Residence
Putnam Valley, New York

This is a project completed for a local family's upstate New York lake house. The original windows were in disrepair and were refurbished on site. The original hardware- much of which was broken- was replaced with bronze crank operators and locking handles. The new paint color, Benjamin Moore's "Bronzetone" complements the hardware finish and the natural stone of the home's exterior walls. 

Residence
Oxford, Mississippi

While designing a new home in Oxford, Mississippi, the homeowner and architect flew up to view our collection of vintage windows. They selected a number of vintage Fenestra windows, which were repaired, primed, glazed with clear ¼” laminated glass and finish-coated in our shop.   The hardware was altered to a modern locking handle that would suit the home’s style.  Upon completion, the windows were delivered to Mississippi and installed by the general contractor. 

Residence
St. Petersburg, Florida

This is a Spanish Mediterranean home in St. Petersburg, Florida built in 1928. In addition to preserving the 84 operable windows, we brought down several windows to match originals that were previously replaced. The process consisted of stripping and priming all windows, installing and glazing over 700 panes of 1/4" laminated glass, and applying two finish coats on all interior and exterior surfaces. Aside from preserving the historic quality of this home, we restored the windows for $200,000 less than the cost of purchasing new steel windows

Residence
Phoenix, Arizona

This is a small job completed in two days in Phoenix, Arizona, and is a good example of the cost effectiveness of repairing versus replacing the windows.  All the casements here were serviced to make sure they opened and closed correctly, and a large air conditioning unit was removed from one of the large arch top windows in the front of the house.  The steel sash was then rebuilt on site and new glass was installed and glazed.
