Casement

HISTORIC MODERN

A visionary homeowner was enthralled with examples of modern architecture at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1933. Inspired by the early modernist LeCorbusier, V. Mel Kaufmann returned to his home in Minneapolis determined to build a weekend home in the new International style. Kaufman hired a fresh graduate of the University of Minnesota School of Architecture named James Brunet, and they constructed a house in 1936 on Cedar Lake in the modern style. The avant-garde design, stripped of ornamentation and non-referential to earlier architectural styles, was groundbreaking in its time.

 

Almost 75 years later, the present owners came to Lars Peterssen of the architecture firm of Peterssen/Keller with a request to adapt the living space to the needs of their 21st-century family. They loved the modernist style, the Art Deco influences, and the lake views, and didn’t want the remodel to compromise any of these significant characteristics. Peterssen/Keller’s design included a third-floor addition for the master suite and another new bedroom on the first floor, as well as mechanical system improvements, window replacement, and interior upgrades. The project so successfully integrated the new additions that the Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Commission approved the changes to the designated Minneapolis Historic Landmark.

 

The west elevation of the home, facing Cedar Lake, features walls of windows on all floors which invite natural light to fill the space and give the home a modern-day feel. Marvin® Ultimate Casements and Ultimate French Doors with contemporary architectural hardware add to the clean lines inside and out. “What we needed to do,” said Peterssen, “and what our client wanted us to do, was to work within the style and not do anything that would change the house dramatically. Both inside and outside, all floors of the house flow together seamlessly so that the major third-floor addition does not overwhelm the rest of the home and maintains the significant features of the landmark home.”

 

Special Shapes

THE CASTLE

This epic renovation required the structure to be gutted down to its original stone masonry boundary wall, which was built over three separate time periods dating back to the 1850s. The castle-like forms of the stone masonry, including a crenellated parapet and gothic arched entrances, became the street side theme of the building. In back, the original window openings were restored with Marvin products to take advantage of the elevated southern view. Nearly all of the Marvin windows and doors for this home were customized to fit existing masonry openings of all shapes, sizes, and muntin layouts. The flexibility of these custom products was critical to preserving the character in the building with modern functionality.

BEECHWORTH® WINDOWS, LLC – WINDOWS AND DOORS
TRANSFERABLE LIMITED WARRANTY
Effective September 2016

IMPORTANT NOTICE. By purchasing, installing or using this product,
you are acknowledging that this Transferable Limited Warranty
(“Limited Warranty”) is part of the terms of sale of your purchase and
use of Beechworth Windows LLC (“Beechworth”) windows and doors.
LIMITED WARRANTY. Beechworth Windows, LLC (“BW”) warrants its BW
Window System products (each, the “Product”) as follows:
Glass Components. The glass in the Products is warranted to be free from
manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship for twenty (20) years
from the date of purchase from the retailer/dealer. This includes not
developing within the warranted 20-year timeframe any premature or
permanent material obstruction of vision as a result failure of the glass or
organic seal. Non-tempered glass is warranted against stress cracks
caused by manufacturing defects for ten (10) years from the original date of
purchase. Glass warranties apply to factory-installed glass or Beechworthsupplied
glass installed by Beechworth-authorized service personnel. After
the 20th year, this Limited Warranty will expire and shall no longer be
applicable. All other glass and glass features are provided with the same
warranties, limitations, and exclusions Beechworth receives from its
supplier; contact Beechworth for further details.
Non-Glass Components. Non-glass components of Beechworth windows
and doors (including hardware locks, lifts, balance systems, hinges,
handles, insect screens, weather-stripping, and exterior trim, sash and
frame members) are warranted to be free from manufacturing defects in
materials and workmanship that significantly impair their proper operation
and function for a period of fifteen (15) years from the date of purchase
from the retailer/dealer. After the 15th year for original owners and after the
10th year for transferees, this Limited Warranty will expire and shall no
longer be applicable.
Exterior Finish. Outside of two (2) miles from the seacoast, Beechworth’s
standard exterior cladding finish is warranted against manufacturing defects
in materials and workmanship resulting in cracking and loss of adhesion
(peel) for fifteen (15) years from the original date of purchase, and within 2
miles of the seacoast for ten (10) years. After the 15th year, this Limited
Warranty will expire and shall no longer be applicable.
Interior Finish. Beechworth’s standard interior cladding finish is warranted
against manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship resulting in
cracking and loss of adhesion (peel) for five (5) years from the original date
of purchase. After the 5th year, this Limited Warranty will expire and shall no
longer be applicable. Raised grain or other natural variation in the wood
grain along with changes in the coloring of wood are natural qualities of
wood and not a defect. Interior finish is applied prior to assembly and is not
intended to cover joinery seams. Products with factory-applied primer only
are not covered under this provision. Factory-applied primer must be
painted in accordance with Beechworth’s finishing instructions within 90
days of installation.
ADDITIONAL LIMITED WARRANTY TERMS. This Limited Warranty
extends only to (i) the first retail purchaser of the Product; (ii) the first owner
of the structure in which the Product are originally installed and (iii) the first
transferee of the structure in which the Product are originally installed (each
a “Covered Person” and “you”). If you sell or cease to occupy your home
within the term of the Limited Warranty (calculated from the original date of
purchase), the Limited Warranty will apply for the remainder of its term.
This Limited Warranty applies to Beechworth windows and doors
purchased on or after the Effective Date from an authorized Beechworth
dealer. This Limited Warranty is made as of the original date of product
purchase and is not a warranty of future performance. This Limited
Warranty is applicable only to product installed in the U.S.A. and Canada.
WHAT WE WILL DO. If the Product is defective in material or workmanship
and such defect is reported in accordance with the terms of the Limited
Warranty notice, Beechworth will, in its sole discretion, either repair or
replace the defective product or component, or, refund the Covered Person
the original retail cost of the defective product or component. If the original
retail cost cannot be established by the Covered Person to Beechworth’s
reasonable satisfaction, the cost shall be determined by Beechworth in its
sole and reasonable discretion. Beechworth’s repair, replacement, or
refund of the defective portion of the Product or reimbursement pursuant to
this Limited Warranty is the exclusive remedy for the Covered Person for
any defect in materials or workmanship. Where Beechworth chooses to
repair or replace product or refund the price paid, the costs covered by this
limited warranty do not include any labor or material costs, including but not
limited to removal, installation, finishing, refinishing, and disposal costs and
services, and costs associated with finishing space surrounding or adjacent
to the repaired or replaced product, including furnishing any trim or other
carpentry work. Beechworth will endeavor to supply original replacement
Product and parts; however, replacement Product and parts may differ from
the originals. Repaired or Replacement product provided pursuant to this
Limited Warranty shall be subject to the applicable Beechworth product
Limited Warranty only for the remainder of the original warranty period on
the Product being replaced. If Beechworth provides any of the remedies
identified in the Limited Warranties above (i.e., repair, replacement of
product or refund of the purchase price), then Covered Person agrees that
this limitation of remedy shall not have failed of its essential purpose.
WHAT YOU MUST DO/CONDITIONS OF LIMITED WARRANT. Warranty
coverage under this Limited Warranty shall be subject to the following terms
and conditions: A Covered Person must provide written notice to
Beechworth within sixty (60) days after discovery of any claimed defect
covered by this Limited Warranty and before beginning any permanent
repair. Warranty notice periods begin on the original date of purchase. This
Limited Warranty is fully transferable. Any claims otherwise covered by the
foregoing warranties, but for which Beechworth did not receive notice within
one (1) year from the time the problem first became known, shall be barred.

dealer or distributor from whom you purchased your product, a description
of product, serial number or other identifying product code if available, order

expense, provide for protection of all property that could be affected until
the claimed defect is remedied if applicable. Before any permanent repair to
the Product, a Covered Person must allow Beechworth or Beechworth’s
authorized agent to enter the property and structure where the Product is
installed, if applicable, and examine, photograph and take samples of the
Product. Any repairs initiated by or on behalf of a Covered person without
prior authorization from Beechworth may void the warranty. If the Limited
Warranty period has expired and for repairs not covered by the Limited
Warranty, many replacement parts are available for purchase. Beechworth
may charge an inspection fee for any on-site product inspection if
necessary to determine warranty coverage. If the inspection reveals that
the Beechworth Product has a defect covered by this limited warranty, the
inspection fee will be waived.

ADDITIONAL EXCLUSIONS:
Water Management. Beechworth products should not be used in barrier
wall systems, which do not allow for proper management of moisture within
the wall systems, such as Exterior Insulation Finish Systems (EIFS)
(“synthetic stucco”) or similar systems. Beechworth makes no warranty of
any kind on and assumes no responsibility for Beechworth windows and
doors installed in barrier wall systems.
Thermal Efficiency/Argon. Beechworth does not warrant the amount or
percentage of argon or other inert gas present in insulating glass at any
time after manufacture. Inert gas dissipates over time, and may be
ineffective in products manufactured with capillary tubes. Thermal
efficiencies vary with the application of the product.
Corrosion. Except as expressly provided in this Limited Warranty, finish
failure or corrosion of anodized and other specialty finishes, hardware, or
other components due to environmental conditions such as air pollutants,
acid rain, salt, sand, chemicals, or other corrosive substances is not
covered by the Limited Warranty.
LIMITATION OF WARRANTY. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS THE
EXCLUSIVE WARRANTY FOR THE PRODUCT, WRITTEN OR ORAL OR
IMPLIED, PROVIDED BY BEECHWORTH. BEECHWORTH DISCLAIMS
ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR
PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR OTHERWISE. No dealer, employee, or
agent of Beechworth, nor any third party, may create or assume any other
liability, obligation, or responsibility on behalf of Beechworth. In the event
that applicable consumer law prohibits the disclaimer of an implied
warranty, the above Limited Warranty shall not extend the time period of
any such implied warranty. Some states do not allow limitations for
consumers on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation
may not apply to you. This limited warranty is only applicable in the U.S.A.
(i.e. the fifty states and the District of Columbia) and Canada. This Limited
Warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may have additional
rights, which vary from state to state. Any implied warranty which cannot be
disclaimed under applicable law will be limited in duration to the shortest
permissible term and, in any event, will not exceed the term of the
applicable express limited warranty and the requirements for presenting
any claim so affected will be as provided in this Limited Warranty. Any
product or component not specifically subject to this Limited Warranty or
another written Beechworth product warranty is provided AS IS and
without warranty. THIS WARRANTY IS NOT A WARRANTY OF
FUTURE PERFORMANCE OR A STATEMENT OF THE USEFUL LIFE
OF ANY BEECHWORTH PRODUCT, BUT ONLY A WARRANTY TO
REPAIR, REPLACE, OR REFUND. All warranty claims must be made
during the applicable warranty period. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH
BEECHWORTH INSTALLATION AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
VOIDS ALL WARRANTIES UNLESS IT IS CLEARLY ESTABLISHED BY
THE COVERED PERSON THAT THE DEFECT OR FAILURE IS
UNRELATED TO SUCH NONCOMPLIANCE.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. This Limited Warranty sets forth the maximum
liability for our products. IN NO EVENT WILL BEECHWORTH BE LIABLE
FOR ANY INCIDENTIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES
INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY CLAIMS OF PROPERTY
DAMAGE, BASED UPON BREACH OF WARRANTY, BREACH OF
CONTRACT, TORT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY. IN NO EVENT
WILL BEECHWORTH’S LIABILITY EXCEED THE PRICE PAID FOR THE
AFFECTED PRODUCT OR COMPONENT. ITS LIABILITY WILL IN ALL
INSTANCES BE LIMITED TO THE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OR
REFUND OF THE ACTUAL PURCHASE PRICE OF THE DEFECTIVE
PRODUCT. The limitations of warranty and liability set forth herein shall
survive and apply, even if the exclusive remedy set forth in this Limited
Warranty is found to have failed of its essential purpose.

Window & Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) Hallmark Certification;

SUITABILITY. All construction must anticipate some water infiltration.
Therefore, the wall system must be designed and constructed to properly
manage moisture. Beechworth is not responsible for claims or damages
caused by water infiltration due to deficiencies in building design,
construction and maintenance. The determination of the suitability of all
building components, including the use of Beechworth products, as well as
the design and installation of water management systems, is the
responsibility of the Covered Person, architect, contractor, installer or other
construction professional. The Covered Person assumes all risks related to
building design and construction, and the maintenance, installation and use
of Beechworth Products.
ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Limited Warranty and all the terms contained
herein constitutes the entire agreement between Beechworth and the
Covered Person and contains and represents the only warranty extended
by Beechworth for the Product. Beechworth offers this Product, and
Covered Person accepts it, subject to the foregoing Limited Warranty,
which may be modified only by written agreement signed by a duly
authorized representative of Beechworth. This Limited Warranty, including
all Limitations of Liability contained herein, is made a part of any such
written agreement, unless expressly excluded therein. No employee or
agent of Beechworth or any other party is authorized to make any other
warranty in addition to those made in this Limited Warranty. By purchasing
or using the product covered by this Limited Warranty, the Covered Person
agrees that they are not relying on any oral statements made by anyone
that are in any way contrary to this Limited Warranty.
MODIFICATION OR DISCONTINUATION OF PRODUCTS. Beechworth
reserves the right to discontinue or modify any Product at any time without
notice. In the event that repair or replacement of the Product with a like
Product pursuant to this Limited Warranty is not possible, Beechworth may
fulfill any repair or replacement obligation under this Limited Warranty with
a Product of equal or greater value.
NO WAIVER. Beechworth may, in its discretion, extend benefits beyond
what is covered under this Limited Warranty. Any such extension shall
apply only to the specific instance in which it is granted, and shall not
constitute a waiver of Beechworth’s right to strictly enforce the exclusions,
disclaimers, and limitations set forth in this Limited Warranty in any or all
other circumstances.
