This courtyard building, built in the 1920’s is located on the West side of Chicago. In the 1990’s, the owner removed all the original heavy wood sashes, sent them to the landfill, and installed vinyl plastic “replacement” windows, destroying the architectural look of this solid brick building. Now, they are replacing all those vinyl windows (hundreds of them), which are already broken and failing, with another round of new “super high efficiency” vinyl windows (now in white). The current windows are also going in a landfill. How long before they are replaced again? This is the reason we do not install vinyl windows.
