Window Options for 1901 Home: Sash Horns and IGU’s
I have a 1901 Victorian farmhouse with original windows painted shut and broken weights. I’m going to do a lot of energy work on it so I’m debating replacing windows completely (or sash replacements) or doing my own repair/upgrades. My problem with the first option is they have sash horns (this is what they call them in the UK, it’s a decorative extension on the stiles on the upper sash) and I can’t seem to find a US manufacturer who makes windows that look like this. Is anyone aware of one or have recommendations for one that will not break the bank doing a custom sash? My other option is to do weather striping, install a spring based chain and replace the glass with a good IGU. My problem is I know how to source for the first two items, but have no clue where to get really good IGUs on a small quantity basis. Would love to hear others experience or recommendations. Thanks.
