At Chosen Wood Windows, we emphasize quality craftsmanship above all and are flexible enough to fit operations into many different time constraints. Our diverse project history has equipped us with the knowledge and skills to work in a number of job environments.

If your project is seeking a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) qualification, we can tailor our methods and products to your needs. We are knowledgeable in selecting, procuring, and utilizing products that can meet strict V.O.C. requirements, as well as products harvested or manufactured with the geographic boundaries set forth as LEED qualifying.

A Green Company

Chosen Wood Windows is a green company. We hate to see valuable wood windows go to waste. More often than not, replacing windows is a poor economic and environmental decision. It is our goal to educate on the value of saving your wood windows which, in turn, will save you money and return the value of your architecture.

Trained & Professional Window Staff

Our staff is highly qualified to handle all of your wood window and door needs. Our company employs staff experienced at carpentry, painting, glazing, and maintenance repairs and restoration. We hold all of our employees to a high industry standard in all parts of the restoration and repair process!

Customer and employee safety is also a top priority. We follow equipment safe work practices and lead-safe work practices when encountered. Compliance, safety, and customer satisfaction are our top priorities at Chosen Wood Windows.

Due to the size of our team, we can finish large-scale jobs with faster lead times than the competition. We can also advise you on what is in your best interest with your windows, whether that’s a repair or replacement. In other words, if we go to a project, and the windows are beyond repair, we will let you know. While we primarily do repairs, replacements are not out of the question.


Our restoration and repair program is focused on the EPA’s Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Program (40 CFR Part 745, Subpart E) and OSHA’s 29 CFR 1926.62. This allows us to properly train and protect our workers, contracted employees, and the public from a health and safety standpoint.

Our program includes employing staff that are experienced at carpentry, painting, glazing, maintenance repairs, and restoration. As outlined in the OSHA ‘Lead in Construction’ document and the standard, we have noted the areas of significance below that our program includes:

  1. Hazard determination, including exposure assessment
  2. Medical surveillance and provision for medical removal
  3. Job-specific compliance programs
  4. Engineering and work practice controls
  5. Respiratory protection
  6. Protective clothing and equipment
  7. Housekeeping
  8. Hygiene facilities and practices
  9. Signage
  10. Employee information and training
  11. Recordkeeping
We satisfy the OSHA regulations by providing training, PPE, and medical surveillance. With our program, we include exposure monitoring, blood lead testing, recordkeeping, and respiratory protection. The RRP Checklist is utilized for pre-renovation and project setup, and post-renovation cleaning, as this is appropriate for our work practices and methods. Our lead management/compliance plan is detailed, comprehensive, and covers our work at Chosen Wood Windows, where safety and customer satisfaction are our top priorities.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide quality services and products that accommodate our customers’ specific needs. We aim to preserve and provide quality materials, builds, and restoration methods that enhance a building’s unique character.


Chosen Wood Windows was founded by Vern Forrest in 1998 with one purpose: to rebuild failing pine windows on-site. The service was extremely popular, and we have expanded from rebuilding pine windows to launching a full line of products and services for modern, vintage, and historical wood windows. To this day, we pride ourselves on delivering large-magnitude projects and high-quality results. We can bring this same level or service and precision to jobs of any size.
