New Year's Resolution: Window Replacements

With the new year upon us, many co-op and condo tenants will start thinking about apartment renovations. In a city as loud as New York, window replacements are at the top of the list for apartment owners who want to limit noise disturbances.

An article published in The New York Times, The Red Tape of New Windows , answers many of the frequently asked questions FSI Architecture receives from current and prospective clients when it comes to rules and regulations of window replacements. 

Consider the following tips: 

  • Determine whether renovations are your responsibility or the building's. Every condo/co-op is different. 
  • If your building has been designated a landmark, plan accordingly as your proposed renovations are going to have to be approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Keep in mind, some projects are lengthier than others. 
  • Think about your budget. Consider window prices as well as professional services fees and permit fees to come up with a realistic budget. 

We are happy to answer any questions you might have. Contact Tom Cimillo, our Director of Business Development at 212.645.3775 or via email tomc@fsi-architecture.com
