Don't replace; restore!
We can match any radius of curved or bent glass to replace broken panes in antique Victorian wood windows. In most cases we can supply curved sound reduction glass to match the radius of curved glass (bent-glaas) windows.
Maintain the architectural integrity of your home by restoring your beautiful bent or curved glass windows. Though repair of these windows requires more skill and effort than common flat-glass windows, they can be made to function just as they once did.
Because the wood in these windows tends to deform more frequently than other windows, drafts and street noise are common complaints. Not only do we often gently reshape the wood parts to better fit together, but we also replace any broken panes we encounter. Drafts are further reduced with our installation of a quality traditional bronze weatherstrip meant for this purpose. As an added benefit, our weatherstrip greatly improves the smoothness of operation of these windows.

BENT GLASS VICTORIAN WINDOW RESTORATION & REPLACEMENT
A new adjunct to our business for 2018! Please have a look at our new online Victorian Door Catalog. It's been a couple years in the works but we finally launched with 16 drawings of the doors we offer.
This bent-glass sash window had been neglected way up in a Victorian cupola (left). Raven fully restored it to get it through the next 100 years.
Raven Restoration supplies and installs new curved-glass windows when necessary. The poorly manufactured (bent) curved-sashes installed in this turret 20 year ago, were literally rotted to the point of falling out. The new ones we supplied have sound-reduction glass and will last many decades.
The window of this cupola was in desparate need of structural restoration (interior view above).
