Historic Windows Brochure


Windows are an important defining element of historic buildings. Their design, craftsmanship and aesthetic qualities often make them worthy of preservation. But what makes a window look historic? Can I repair my historic windows? Why can’t I use vinyl windows?

This document was created to answer these and other common questions and assist the homeowner in keeping the historic character and charm of their house. I made the window sketches friendly and easy to understand to accompany the text.

This guide was made possible by The City of Boise Planning and Development Services and NENA (North End Neighborhood Association). You can find this 4 page document online at    Close
