About Me

After careers in the corporate and non-profit sectors, I found my way to window restoration through my own home, a Tudor revival in the Drake Neighborhood of Des Moines, Iowa. I had no idea when I started restoring my own windows that I would fall in love with the process and make it my full time career. In the course of working on my own project, it became clear to me that there was a local need to for this service so I started Knox Plat Windows in 2014. I’ve combined hands-on experience with workshop training from nationally respected preservationists to prepare to tackle a wide range of window maintenance and restoration projects.  To learn more about my range of services, click the link below. Currently I am only able to take work in Des Moines but since I also belong to a network of window preservation professionals around the country, I can likely refer non-Des Moines clients to someone who can help them locally.
