Lead Paint ~ Window Restoration

St Martins Lane Mansion

The St. Martin's area was at the core of Chestnut Hill's transformation from a rural village to a suburban community served by two railroad lines. Developed by Pennsylvania Railroad director Henry Howard Houston, and continued by his son-in-law George Woodward, St. Martin's includes several community institutions as well as many fine homes. (more from the Chestnut Hill Historical Society...)

Old Village Master Painters had the pleasure to work on a Lead Paint RRP project on this beautiful historic mansion - recognized by the Chestnut Hill Preservation and Historical Association - on St Martin's Lane. The home features large arched palladian windows and shutters facing the inner courtyard. The 1st floor features casements and the 2nd floor louvered shutters, all of which had been painted shut for years.

We safely removed the lead paint and restored the windows to like-new condition, then repainted the exterior.

Restoring Old Windows

Od Village specializes in preserving and restoring older, odd and over-sized windows often found on the older and historic homes like this one in Chestnut Hill. Our new EnveloStrip™ process allows us to remove many of these windows and do most of the messy paint removal and restoration work away from your home.

Old Growth wood windows will last a very long time with proper maintenance and keeping them is the greener choice over throwing them away.. They were designed and crafted to fit your home and when properly restored can be as energy efficient as new windows.

Preserving the Details

The ornamentation on windows, doors and other architectural details are part of what makes your home unique and gives it character. Preserving these details - mill-work, carvings, wavy antique glass - is essential to our restoration process.
