Accoya wood shines at Cooper Historical Windows’ restoration project in New Haven, CT.
From Thermopane Insulated Glass units with historically accurate glass to 350+ window sashes, Accoya’s strength is evident. Enhanced by a 3-part water-based paint system, Accoya windows stand robust.
Even lead paint was removed from frames, with new backer rod and sealants, followed by Accoya-framed sashes for original operation. This sustainable choice brings historical accuracy, low-maintenance, and energy efficiency to windows dating back to 1884. Completed in 2022, this restoration speaks to Accoya’s timeless resilience.
