Bovard Studio offers full-service frame design and installation in a variety of materials and finishes. All of our framing systems incorporate our patented Precision Flow® venting system. Our venting system complies with the engineering studies showing the requirements determined by the National Preservation Center’s 1996 Protective Glazing Study for stained glass windows.
Bovard Studio recommends exterior wood frames made with plantation-grown mahogany or the heartwood of Eastern White Pine. Both are 100-year exterior quality woods that with proper maintenance can last more than a century.
The client can choose the desired finish. For paint grade finishes, we recommend Sherwin-Williams Duration® Coating which lasts 25 to 30 years on new wood and only requires standard painting processes to refinish when required by time.
