Boston Building Resources carries a wide range of doors, windows, and related products. We have state-of-the-art, energy efficient designs and new styles on the cutting edge that help you preserve the architectural style of your home. All windows and doors are custom ordered, so you can have the style you want in the size you need.
We can install replacement windows, storm windows, and storm doors for you. You can also choose to do it yourself (take one of our workshops to learn how) or to find a contractor through our tradesperson referral file.
As your co-op, Boston Building Resources sells both replacement and new-construction windows from Harvey Building Products, Kolbe & Kolbe, Anderson Windows, Velux, AWSCO Architectural Millwork, and Boston Sash & Millwork. Our selection includes all-wood, aluminum-clad wood, fiberglass, and vinyl.
You can purchase doors both “pre-hung” and “door only.” We offer interior and exterior doors in a variety of styles and sizes. Our selection of interior doors includes historically significant two- and five-panel fir, and four- and six-panel pine. We also carry Masonite Emerald and Safe-N-Sound molded doors with excellent green credentials in many styles.
Exterior doors can be ordered with a fully weatherstripped jamb and an attractive wood threshold. Fiberglass, Masonite, and Therma-Tru doors are popular choices for their energy-efficient properties. A new "green technology" wood door offering is the Torrefied line from Lemieux. The advanced wood treatment process makes these doors withstand exposure and weather conditions that damage other wood doors. Only Lemieux Torrefied doors come with a 20-year warranty for the most extreme conditions, including zero protective overhang, south-facing exposure, and painted black. Customers interested in keeping their existing door jambs may order the door only.
Harvey Tru-Channel storm windows available. We can also install them for you.
A high quality “triple track” storm window will make a a refurbished existing wood double-hung window energy efficient. Boston Building Resources is one of the only retail outlets where homeowners can purchase the Tru-Channel storm window made by Harvey Building Products. We believe this is the best storm window available due to the quality of its construction, low air infiltration rate, and ease of installation and operation. We also sell Harvey’s combination storm vinyl acoustic window, storm picture window, and deadlite window. Tru-Channel storm windows are also available with upgraded glazing for sound control ratings up to STC30.
Storm windows are custom ordered for your home and priced based on a measuring structure of united inches (UI), width + height).
Costs for a standard storm window in white, with Low-E and a fiberglass half screen, are as follows:
● Small unit (0-88 UI) would cost $227.50
● Medium unit (89-101 UI) would cost $284.00
● Large unit (102-110 UI) would cost $304.00
(The included upgrade for Low-E is $29.25.)
Storm windows come in other color options for an additional charge: bronze ($42.75), black ($42.75), and almond ($32.75). You can also upgrade the screen to a more durable aluminum screen for $7.00
BBR offers a range of Harvey storm and screen combination doors. Options include the premium Estate line with many available styles and colors. This heavy-duty insulated storm door is available in large custom sizes and double-door configurations. Simple wood screen doors and wood and aluminum combination doors are also available.
