Every now and then we get a restoration project that involves curved windows.
This project was for a mansion in downtown Richmond. We were commissioned to remove the windows, dismantle, and rebuild them with new zinc. Our goal was to make the windows look as original as possible, especially the patina on the zinc.
We also added 1/4″ reinforcing bars on the horizontal lines, to take the pressure off expansion and contraction off of the zinc. The final phase was to install curved tempered glass on the outside.
