    Our home has old windows, but they still work. I would like to add more LED lighting, though.

    Thanks for this feature! My 1950s home has awful replacement windows and I haven’t really known where to go to figure out what I’ll do with them. It’s nice to know the Window Design Center is local, customer-oriented, and won’t rush in to replace something old with something new, just because.

    When you worked on the windows in the capital building, were you able to re-use the actual glass? Are the new windows now sealed double-paned windows? Did you use wood for the frames on the capital window replacements?

    Window Design Center sounds like a great company with a strong environmental ethic. It’s nice to know that for a house with older windows, there are options besides just replacing them. Maybe the older windows can be saved.

    The windows at the State Capital had new insulated glass with wooden window frames installed in them.

    We do everything from homes to restaurants or large apartment building. Places like Meriter hospital, Doolittles Fire Wood Grille, Samba Grille, Sequoya Commons, The CVS on West Washington St or 4th Ward Lofts to name a few. If you have some plans and need to get your project quoted you can send them via email or bring in a set for us to make a copy.

    Our next door neighbor is getting new windows this week. I think our replacement windows were put in about 15 years ago. We all need to realize that windows don’t last forever, and the newer double or triple pane windows are so much better than the old windows with separate (and maybe loose) storm windows that did not control airflow. Our old windows frosted up so much in winter, and that problem went away with the replacements. Our state capitol is a treasure, and it is interesting to hear how it has been upgraded and protected for the future!

    Love that not everything needs to be replaced, working to improve is fantastic.

    I like the fact that the company takes its own lighting and transportation carbon footprint into account when making decisions for themselves. As an owner of an older home (1928), I will be giving them a call about how to maintain the look of our windows while becoming more energy efficient.

    I am glad to see they are buying green energy. I think learning about how much windows contribute to energy loss would have made the video even stronger.
