9 Step Restoration Process
Re-View has developed a nine step process for restoring historic wood windows. This process is a result of working on thousands of historic wood windows, referencing countless specifications and periodicals that address the proper methods for preserving landmark structures.
1. On-Site Survey: Re-View creates a digital survey of the conditions found onsite that serves as the foundation for the entire project.
2. Lead Paint Removal: Re-View has vast experience in the proper methodology for hazardous material abatement both onsite and in our plant.
3. Repair Structural Mortis and Tenon Joints: Re-View uses only the finest adhesives, fasteners, and epoxies to tend to the structural element of a historic wood window.
4. Replace Deteriorated Components: Re-View fabricates exact replicas of component parts for an exacting replacement.
5. Apply Liquid Epoxy: Re-View craftsmen have worked with liquid epoxy systems on thousands of windows.
6. Apply Epoxy Wood Filler: Re-View only uses the best epoxy system on the market.
7. Finish Sand: Re-View craftsmen use a combination of standard and custom sanding tools to prepare a restored wood window for finishing.
8. Glazing: We have people skilled in both putty glazing and stop glazing. Re-View doesn't produce leaking windows.
9. Finish Paint: Re-View has invested in an automated paint line with four paint booths and a large drying oven to handle large finish projects.
