 storm windows for 100 yr old home

Author: Candee Jean Moffitt (

I have a home that was built in 1906. I want to install storm windows that would fit the period of my home (neo classical). The previous owner had a craftsman make several for the windows downstairs but never completed the whole house before she sold it. I can not locate anyone who can finish the job. Are there any window companies that can make storm windows to fit an older home? Most of the windows in the house are original just reworked.

Thank you,

Candee Jean Moffitt

PS: I live in Monroe NY

Hi I live in NJ about 40 min. from Monroe, and I just had Certainteed, double hungs put in my 100 year old house. Look at their website. They have recently come out with some beautiful custom windows, with many different styles (stained glass, etched glass, geometric paned etc) that might suit your needs.

I know nothing of architectural styles. My interpretation
is that you want to retain the historical look of your house.

I did a web search on "storm-window historical" & found -
contains the wishes of one community regarding the appearance
of windows.

are sites of two companies that will fabricate custom wooden
(storm) windows to your requirements.

is an index to a whole lot of sites which mix windows/doors
& preserving historical appearances.

and much, much more. You have a common problem which is not
"vinyl replacement windows". Good luck.

Windows are glasses
