If you are a regular reader of our updates, you may remember that we hired Window Woman of New England -- an Amesbury, MA company dedicated to window restoration rather than replacement – to evaluate all 93 windows at Pickering House. Based upon her advice, we decided to restore the eight front and side windows on the first floor of the house. For the remaining windows, we had our hearts set on a historically accurate window from Pella called the Pella Architect Series®Reserve™.
Introduced in February 2017, Pella’s Architect Series was developed in consultation with the National Park Service, which oversees the National Register of Historic Places. The Architect Series®Reserve™ incorporates historic window details such as exterior putty glaze, butt joinery, authentic profile depths and more, while offering great energy efficiency.
Patty has used Pella windows in numerous Wolfeboro projects through Wentworth Style, her renovation consulting business. She turned to her Pella team – Brandon Pfister, Sales Representative; Jack Tull, Trade Sales Manager; and Scott Tirrell, Architectural Consultant – to find a way to make the Architect Series windows a reality for Pickering House.
Pella Windows & Doors of Eastern Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine stepped up to offer below-market pricing. David Hadley, the CEO and owner of the company, is a local resident who is particularly committed to preserving the unique character of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. He quickly pledged his company’s help to make the Architect Series windows financially feasible. “Our commitment to vibrant local communities, our connection to Wolfeboro, and our windows tailored to historic renovations made a Pickering House and Pella partnership ideal,” explains Jack Tull.
Historic renovation is always a labor of love but sometimes the high cost makes even a labor of love prohibitive. Thanks to the support of community-minded vendors like Pella of Eastern Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine, the dollars and cents make – excuse the pun – sense.
Thank you Pella Windows & Doors!
