Significant bowing in the existing wooden frame resulted in leaking and decay of the original frame. The existing stained glass and wooden frame are removed (top left photo) to allow for installation of a new aluminum frame. The new frame is installed in two sections (top center and top right photos). The new aluminum frame is engineered to meet local building code requirements for wind load. The stained glass is reworked slightly to accommodate the new frame and is re-installed. The aluminum frame closely replicates the delicate lines of the original wood frame.
