Restore the Function & Beauty of Your Twin Cities’ Windows with Window Reconditioning
Do you love the timeless appearance of your classic wood windows — but hate how they stick when you slide them open? Even worse, older windows can be an annoying hassle to clean. Are you tired of every contractor telling you that you have to replace your windows just because they don’t offer any alternative solutions. You may know your windows need some serious work — but you are unwilling to part with them and may not be prepared to invest money into brand-new windows.
Hundreds of homeowners find themselves in this same situation, which is why Beissel Window & Siding is proud to recondition and restore old windows on historic residences in Minneapolis and St. Paul. We have been in business for over 70 years and plan to keep going for 70 more, so you never have to worry about us leaving town after the job is done — we are here to stay.
Benefits of Reconditioning Old Windows with Beissel Window & Siding
Homeowners invest in window reconditioning, first and foremost, because their windows are not working properly. During our window reconditioning process, we modify the side rails to accommodate custom-made jambs with weatherstripping and insulation. Not only will your windows slide open with ease — they will keep uncomfortable drafts and noises outside.
If your windows are difficult to clean now, you will love the minimal effort it takes to make your reconditioned windows sparkle and shine. After we update your old windows, they will have a modern tilt-in sash for easy cleaning in hard-to-reach places.
You do not need to purchase new windows to give your current windows a fresh look — especially if the wood is still in good shape. With our window reconditioning service, we can fill holes and cracks in the frames, replace rusted or broken hardware, sand and clean your frames. The weight cavity can be insulated at the same time the windows are restored, which we would highly recommend.
If you live in a historic home, you may be hesitant to update your old windows because of all the rules, requirements, and hoops you need to jump through to get permission. We have plenty of experience getting approvals through the Heritage Preservation Commission (HPC), so you can enjoy the benefits of restored windows while preserving the historic integrity of your home. Our products have consistently been approved by the HPC.
When you invest in window reconditioning with Beissel Window & Siding, we will not take your windows to a shop — you can watch us do everything on-site from our truck with specialized equipment. However, since your home is our construction zone, we put down tarps, wear footies on our shoes, and clean up after ourselves — because you should never have to.
Protect Your Restored Windows by Installing Mon-Ray Storm Windows
After investing in window reconditioning, you will want to keep your windows looking “good as new” for a long time. That is why we also recommend installing high-quality storm windows from a reputable company, such as Mon-Ray®, to protect your windows from the elements.
The Mon-Ray 500 Flush Mount Series mimics the old wood inserts but without the maintenance and weaknesses of traditional wooden storms.
Beissel Window & Siding installs storm windows that meet all the requirements of the Historic Preservation Commission, so you can maintain your home’s historic appearance while also fortifying your windows with additional weatherproofing, soundproofing, and efficiency.
