Interesting Fact:
This beautiful home is Historic Hyde Park’s oldest house, built in 1882.

Wood Window Makeover is an excellent family run company. We own a 110+ year old historic home in Tampa, and I was eager to pull all the windows out and replace them with ‘functioning’ ones as ours were all caked shut with years of paint! We started out slowly by having Wood Window restore only the front facing windows. We were so impressed with how they restored the front windows that we proceeded with them restoring all the windows around our house. They also made screens for all our windows – which were not even present when we bought the house. We cannot say enough about their knowledge and craftsmanship. We would highly recommend their services to anyone who is serious about restoring and preserving their old windows!
