Wooden windows are called to be respected for their significance and need to be repaired with original materials and features. Something like this is NOT done by just any company and must ONLY be done by certain professionals who know the process of knowing what materials are needed, how to document everything done, and how to correctly preserve the historic restoration. Another reason why people are scared or just build new homes is because of the cost of historic restoration. To help with the cost, there are certain restoration loans such as the FHA 203k. With the FHA 203k, the amount lent is varied by state but the requirements aren’t heavy if you have good credit and go up to 97 percent of the value of the home, but the repairs must be finished within 6 months of closing. The house must also need at least $5000 in non-cosmetic repairs minimum and be a 1-4 family dwelling. In some cases it is also a good idea to check with your state or if available a local historic preservation office to see if you qualify for a grant. Federal grants and tax credits are generally not available though to people restoring historic homes for use as a private residence.
