Custom Arched Storm Panels

Arched Top Storm Door Panels

Location: Park Ridge, IL

Challenge:  The owner of this house in Park Ridge had searched for years for a company that could recreate the failing wood storm panels that were a prominent feature on the façade of his Park Ridge home, yet time and again he was told there was no company to undertake such a custom task.

Solution:  CWDS was up to the challenge.  Using templates of the openings, we fabricated new frames out of cypress – a very durable, rot resistant wood – in our shop.  We not only matched the original shape, but also the size and profiles of all the components.  Once assembled, we glazed the new units with tempered safety glass, then pre-finished them and installed them in their locations.

The new panels are indistinguishable from the originals, which had lasted 80+ years.  We believe the new ones will last at least as long.
