Blake Contracting has been performing historic window restoration for more than fifteen years now, specializing in wood, steel and aluminum window restoration and glazing.

Naturally, these windows contain asbestos and lead paint and require qualified, regulatory compliance for abatement. Our projects range in size from several thousand to more than one million dollars.

The size of your project bears no limitation on Blake’s commitment to quality, efficiency, and the absolute basics of getting the job completed right the first time.
