|Materials and Options – High-End Doors and Windows|
J.S. Benson Woodworking & Design is known for its high-end custom windows and doors. We usually work in pattern mahogany.
Although we prefer to work with pattern grade mahogany, we can use most hardwoods. Where historic exactitude requires it, we can use pine. We can also laminate mahogany and other hardwoods together to give the stability and weather resistance of mahogany on the outside, leaving the other desired hardwood (such as ash) visible on the inside.
Hardware Options: We use various suppliers of American and European hardware in bronze, brass, stainless steel and other hardware finishes.
Finish Options: All windows and doors can be produced either clear-sealed or primed and top-coated. For a top-coated system, we first apply Cabot's bLEED® resistant coating, Tannin-Bloc, followed by Cabot's Factory Finish oil- based Primer and top-coated with Cabot's "Finish" with Teflon Surface Protector. Cabot guarantees this 3-part system for 15 years.
Screen Options: We can make screens to fit any door or window. We typically use either bronze or fiberglass mesh.
Window Options: We make all types of windows, including single-hung, double-hung, picture, bow, awning, hopper, round, half round, casement, and French.
Glazing Technique: Our unique muntin profile is engineered to maximize the longevity of the glazing seal. The individual panes of the true divided light windows are set, from the inside, into a bed of silicon sealant. This forms a continuous gasket. The lights are secured by interior wooden stops, profiled to match any sticking style.
Glass: All windows can be ordered single or double-glazed depending on your specific application. We offer dual-sealed insulated units using clear annealed glass. Optional insulated units include Low E coated, argon-filled tempered, safety-laminated and restoration glass. We recommend using LOF Low E insulated glass that has the same look as normal glass but reduces the energy used to heat and cool your home or business. Leaded stained glass is available through one of our local artisans and we are happy to work with existing panels provided by the customer.
Door Options: We manufacture mahogany stave core doors. All of our doors use mortice and tenon joinery. Teak sills are also available. We make French doors that can replicate those of any historic period. We also make custom entryways, hand crafted to last many generations.
