Frequently Asked Questions
Do you custom build windows? How much does it cost?
Surprisingly, we get this one quite often. Yes we do build custom windows; if you are interested in having a custom piece built please stop by our showroom or contact us. If possible, have your dimensions (rough dimensions are okay) handy so that we can give you a better idea of what price range you will be looking at. Generally, prices start at $150 per square foot, however, due to the unique nature of each and every window we make, there is no generic price and your quote will reflect the intricacy of the design. Please note that many of the windows featured on our website represent our 'high end' work and are very labor intensive. Whatever your budget, our artist will work with your ideas to create a piece that satisfies both your vision and your bottom line.
|Do you ship your merchandise?
While we can and will ship windows and architectural items both within the state and across the US, we have had problems with mis-handled packages in the past (see picture below). Most times this has not proved to be the case, but for elaborate custom or antique pieces we recommend personal pick up. If you do not live within reasonable driving distance, please contact us for further information. We have several reliable specialty shipping companies we can recommend.
