Replacement windows in historic district
Does anyone have a recommendation of a contractor who has replaced windows in a historic neighborhood and doesn’t charge an arm and a leg?
I live in an old home in the historic U Street area, and need to replace several (er, most) of my windows. The city historic office has strict requirements. The vendors they suggest are very high-end, custom makers. Meanwhile, I see developers in the neighborhood restoring buildings and using Jeld-Wen, Marvin and other more standard products. Can anyone recommend a contractor who has worked on historic homes and uses products from standard window suppliers? I don’t have $20K per window to spend on hand-lathed rosewood et cetera. Thanks in advance for any help.
