Historic Renovation Specs

Use this 3 part SimpleSpecs™ master specification to specify metal window restoration of rolled steel windows, the most common type of historic metal window, including frame, sash, and hardware.

This section relies on other sections for many of the materials and procedures needed for this work, including glass, stained glass, and finishes. Restoration of other types of metal windows such as aluminum and bronze can be added.

This section does not cover the replacement of historic metal windows with new windows of non-historic material and construction. Replacement windows can be specified using other SimpleSpecs™ Master Specifications,
