Hoboken and its surrounding area are home to many historic and landmark buildings. When it comes time to restore those properties, it’s not always easy to find windows that match the historic architecture and specific standards and regulations. That’s why we at General Lumber work with Marvin to create highly-customized Historical-Landmark Windows.
Marvin’s broad range of products empowers General Lumber to service many historic landmark projects in Hoboken, Jersey City and Manhattan. We begin with architectural sketches, then move forward with ordering and installation, which can be complicated when working on older buildings. Our installers have years of experience working on projects of this type, and bring an unmatched level of professionalism to each and every job.
We have worked with several local Historical Society and Landmark Commission on various new and restoration projects. If you have a Historic/Landmark replacement project coming up, make General Lumber one of your first calls.
A structure of this magnitude required an added level of planning and execution when the time came to replace a series of poorly weathered windows. Using state-of-the-art technology and painstaking hands-on removal, repair and reinstallation the final results might leave the casual observer wondering whether anything was disturbed in the first place.
Originally designed to blend into its historic neighborhood, this new construction project (circa 2011) incorporated a number of clever design tactics to maximize space and light. The assorted Marvin windows and doors throughout lend an added level of tasteful sophistication and because each unit was operable (casement, awning, and double-hung windows along with Inswing French doors), the end result allows for optimal natural airflow.
Located in Orange County, the 1885 Tuxedo Station stands as a lasting homage to Victorian architecture. Not only is it on the National Register of Historic Places, but it’s an active commuter rail station. Commercial codes and historic architectural standards were handily met with the inclusion of both Marvin Signature Ultimate Wood Double Hung windows and Wood Transom Windows.
