Old House, New Replacement Windows in Evanston
You do not have to compromise the historical style of the older home you bought in order to have the comfort and convenience of new replacement windows.
The Davidoff home in Evanston is an arts and crafts design. When we talked to the couple about replacement windows, we assured them that the new windows would match the history and character that attracted them to the Evanston home in the first place.
We showed them a new European-style tilt-turn window from Marvin that has the same look as their existing windows yet with an uncommon twist. Although from the street they look like traditional double-hung windows, where the bottom slides toward the top, these windows tilt open from the top. That provides additional ventilation. In a unique design, they also crank inward for greater airflow.
It’s a contemporary innovation the Evanston couple appreciated that maintains the historical design of their home.

The Pella Architect Series is a great example of how beautiful, brand-new windows can maintain the historic look of your home, and can keep you within the limits of historic ordinances. These windows are available in a variety of styles:
