Accoya wood was used to restore and replace Fort Norfolk’s historic 1860s wood windows to match to their original state. All new sash, frame and exterior trim were manufactured from Accoya, primed with Sherwin Williams Exterior Oil Based Wood Primer, glazed with Sarco Type M putty and 4.8mm clear glass, and finished with Sherwin Williams Duration Exterior Gloss. The sash are true divided lite, and all joinery is mortise and tenon. Due to the current use of the buildings, all sash were fixed in place. Specialized Property Services performed the design, manufacturing, restoration, and installation of all the windows. The performance period was December 2019 – May 2020.
