While they may not be appropriate in your Victorian or Craftsman home, louver (jalousie) windows are often the original windows in the modernist houses of the 1950s.
Some 60 years later, many of the mechanisms that operate these windows are now failing with some of the glass panes refusing to close or open with the rest of them.
If that’s the case, we are able to help.
We maintain an extensive stock of mechanisms removed while reinstalling original style wood sash on older homes. Chances are, we have a match for your originals.
In addition, we are able to repair broken mechanisms. The aluminum or stainless steel armature of these mechanisms sometimes breaks off from the pieces that hold the glass in place. With care (and the right welding torch), these mechanisms can serve for many additional years.
Feel free to get in touch with us to learn more about repairing your broken louver jalousies.
