For design and aesthetics, windows and doors are one of the most challenging aspects of a classic home. The fenestrations are truly the eyes of a building or a home. The right style of windows and doors on a historic building can make or break the exterior. And beyond appearance, of course, windows and doors also provide light, fresh air, and a connection to the outdoors.

In the 20th century, properties kept the popular double-hung windows, sometimes with a multi-paned upper sash, as well as casement windows. But the elaborate trim of the previous house styles was gone in favor of flat woodwork that was more in keeping with the developing aesthetic for simplicity with metal or aluminum materials.

Today you can choose windows and doors in more forms than our forefathers could have imagined. They have become an energy-efficient part of the house when dealing with a classic design from past buildings.

This project showed a set of mimic historic windows made of contemporary aluminum-clad teak wood materials with French window outswing openings. Located in the luxury community of Beverly Hills, LA, this client's idea was to meet the energy efficiency needs and standards of modern houses as much as possible while maintaining a historic design.

These windows are restored to the original building appearance and with modern energy efficiency performance. With a historic window design heritage and the ability to bring completely unobstructed views to your home.

In this regard, the SDLS (Simulated Divided Lites with Spacer Bars) décor, added a more historic and solemn sentiment to this modern house. Square-shaped divided lite profiles added that special touch to match windows to the historic architectural style, turning a large open pane into a dramatic statement.

Besides the tilt and turn windows, we also offered trapezoid windows to fit the These grilles can not only use on historic windows but are also a great idea for historic doors. The next showcase is a historic door renovation project.verall architectural style.

The old sliding patio door was loose at the bottom sealing and the one layer of glass made the glass wall with a bad energy efficiency performance. We replaced the fully sealed casement door to provide a more comfortable temperature for the entire interior room. These aluminum simulated divided lites with spacer bars on sidelines and glass doors brought a historic impression without compromising any energy efficiency ability.
