Historical Homes

Careful consideration is necessary when planning a remodel of a structure in the historical district. View Point Windows has extensive experience with the rules and regulations surrounding remodels in the various historical districts around the Treasure Valley. We understand that recapturing the original design and form of the structure while balancing the function of sound building science and energy efficiency is a task requiring patience, research, expertise and skill.


"Windows have personalities, reflecting the soul of their unique dwellings."

Many questions arise when selecting new windows for an historical structure. What are they made of? Where are they best placed? What surrounds them inside and out? How will they weather over time? Will they stand up to sun, rain and wind? Do they integrate with other materials of the house?

View Point Solutions

As professionals experienced in Historical District remodels, our most important window installation responsibilities are:

  • To restore the continuity of the weather barrier and its flashing.
  • To notify the owner of structural issues or problems affecting the installation or performance of the installed window system.
  • To follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installation to preserve product specific warranties and insure proper application and performance.
  • To follow all applicable local, state and national codes.
  • To provide an “AAMA Certified Installation” of all windows and doors.
