Historic Boston Home
- When purchased by the homeowners in 2006, the historic Boston Colonial home was on the verge of
complete deterioration after decades of neglect. The result of the homeowners’ four-year renovation
process is a blend of historic architectural details and materials with modern conveniences, including
high-performance electronics, a state-of-the-art kitchen and a modern climate control system.
- The homeowners had to carefully follow Massachusetts Historical Society guidelines and rules throughout
the renovation process. As they had to preserve the original windows that dated from 1912, they could not
add any fixed screens for shading and insect protection. They therefore needed a screen solution that met
the Society guidelines while providing insect protection, solar shade, and ventilation.
- The homeowners selected retractable Serene window screens by Phantom® as the best solution for several
windows in their home. The screens are custom made and professionally installed to match the varying sizes
and colors of each window in the home. The selected mesh type (Fiberglass 18/14 mesh by Phifer) in silver
grey finish provides ventilation and insect protection when the screens are lowered, and blocks 40% of
UV rays during sunny days.
