Preserving Architectural Heritage with Lepage Wood Windows: A Saugerties Historic Home Renovation
The restoration of these two historic buildings near Kaaterskill Creek in Saugerties, New York, exemplified the perfect blend of traditional design and modern functionality. To replace deteriorated windows while preserving the original architectural integrity, the renovation team carefully chose Lepage solid wood double hung and casement windows known for their durability and energy efficiency. The windows replicated the original aesthetic with simulated divided lites (SDL) and putty slope exteriors, maintaining the authentic charm of the homes. The interior showcased a colonial profile and oil rubbed bronze hardware, further enhancing the elegant ambiance. Seamless integration with the existing architecture was achieved through wood screens, promoting natural ventilation while preserving the traditional aesthetic. Custom casing and sill extensions harmoniously blended during the professional window installation the new windows with the historic structure, making this restoration project a testament to preserving historical accuracy and ensuring a lasting legacy for future generations.
