Window Reproduction & Repair Services in Corvallis, OR
Established in October 1845 by Joseph C. Avery, Corvallis was originally named Marysville, either after the early settler Mary Loyd, or after Marys Peak, which was named earlier by French fur trappers. Corvallis and Albany grew at different rates due to their commerce. Albany had the initial railroad and Corvallis had to try to catch up without it. Once the infrastructure was in place, Oregon State University became the prevalent higher education institution which primarily focused on agricultural science and general studies.
My family and I like to do the local activities when we are in the area, such as stopping by the Wednesday farmers’ market to load up on local fresh produce, let the kids play at the fountains and maybe meet up with other Waldorf families that attend our children’s school. Typically after meandering around Avery or Willamette Park, Happy Planet is the place for a quick dinner when we are passing through to keep our kids appeased as we get home past their bed time. And of course, we cannot go without mentioning walking around Lewisburg Saddle and Peavy Arboretum, and a long day trip to Marys Peak.
More and more we find ourselves meeting with potential clients in the College Hill District as well as all the homes on the outskirts of downtown which is yet to be a historic district. One longtime local and preservation advocate mentioned that in Corvallis, energy conservation is religion and unfortunately replacing the windows seems to be the first thing to go.
Corvallis has a great amount of historic stock, but at times I feel the homeowners are unaware of other options. My hope is as I continue to build a reputation and get the word out, perhaps I can help develop that perception that has been sold to them for years and finally bring energy conservation by use of our storm sash, environmental conservation through window preservation, and Oregon craftsmanship in preserving Corvallis’ heritage and historic structures.
