Re: Replacing old Hallway Window
IT may still be cheaper to have it restored. Cna you take photos. It depends on hte cosntruction style. ALL glass can be replaced. IF it's leaded glass, there are places that can restore those. A lto of leaded glass windows are work of art. Woudl you throw away a beautiful oil painting form a famous artist because it got some water damage, is a little dirty and so on... NO. Uless the frame has compeltely rotted apart and is beyond repair, it's easily salvageable. Historic windows just need a little TLC every 50-80 years. That's 20-30 longer than most replacement windows even last.
TO energy efficiency and long term protection, you can have a custom storm window panel made that fits on the outside. The best are made by Allied Window. You cna even get laminated glass which absorbs sound really well, shatter proof lexan or acrylic or Low-E glass that will reduce infrared heat transmission.
All repalcement windows... even $1000 ones will have a smaller window opening and won't last as long as the original when restored.
For good custom window that may look similar and of good quality, expect to spend $1000 or more and #00-500 to replace it.
