Zimmerman House / Severna Park, MD
A Colonial renovation

Constructed in 1769, this colonial home was originally a comfortable farm house, but after 200 years, most of the original windows had rotted, warped and loosened. Like most windows of the colonial period, the windows lacked weather stripping and were made with standard float glass, wavy with imperfections.

The plans called for replacement of all the windows with new windows that replicated the original style and delivered maximum energy efficiency.

Project Highlights

  • Marvin was the only manufacturer that could meet all the architect’s requirements and also provide Authentic Divided Lites and jamb liners to fit the restoration and maintain the colonial character of the home.
  • The project called for 30 custom-size wood windows, including Double Hung and Casemaster windows, and a Bow and a Bay window. Each window was produced to precise specifications to ensure a great fit and maximum energy efficiency.
