ABOUT US

There is nothing more gratifying or rewarding for an architect than working with a company that delivers beautifully crafted units with authentic detailing.

—John H. Salem, Architect

WHAT WE DO

Our products cover engineering and design in all major sectors. We breath new life into historic buildings through beautiful form and function.

For more than 30 years, Architectural Components has specialized in building reproduction and custom wood windows, sash, doors, doorways, and architectural woodwork for hundreds of residential, commercial and institutional restoration and reproduction projects throughout the Northeast and Mid Atlantic. In addition to museum-quality reproductions, we also make energy-efficient true divided-light windows with insulated glass and muntins as narrow as 7/8-inch.

Blending traditional detailing and joinery with modern technology, our 18th, 19th and early 20th century windows, doors and doorways have been approved by numerous historic commissions.

OUR COMMITMENT

We are committed to upholding our most cherished values in every project and task we take on.

We are quite impressed with the quality of your work. The most recent sash is equally well-crafted as those of our original order. We also greatly appreciate the professional manner in which you have handled all of our inquiries and business transactions.

—Gary N. Costello, President Hull House Foundation

RIGHT THE FIRST TIME

Whether it’s building simple hand-planed board-and-batten doors or a more complicated 12-foot in diameter fanlight window, we customize our millwork to meet the specific needs of each owner and property. All projects are priced individually from architectural specifications or specifications and plans we develop together.

When a contract is awarded, we schedule the work and start the planning phase. We visit the job site to take field measurements, check conditions and discuss details with the stakeholders such as the architect, contractor, or owner. Next, we produce detailed shop drawings in AutoCAD to show elevations, full-size sections and details, and the interface of our products with the building. We often produce 3D drawings for complicated projects, as these can be useful in understanding details, joinery, and installations. Shop drawings, samples and product literature on hardware, glass, weatherstripping, finishes, etc., are submitted for review and approval. Revisions are often required. After final approval by the architect or owner, we check and double-check the plans, cutting lists and purchase orders, and start construction.

The quality of our work is very consistent because we benefit from low turnover among our employees. Our craftsmen have years of expertise, specifically building sash, doors, and millwork. Many had previously built hand-crafted cabinetry or furniture and take great pride in their work. Quality control is an ongoing process throughout production as well as prior to packaging and shipping.

We deliver to the site, but do not do the installation. If a problems presents itself, we send a service team to remedy them immediately.
