Sagamore Hill Historic Landmark
Oyster Bay, New York USA
Vista ® Dayview V 45
Preservation The goal of the recent restoration of Sagamore Hill in Oyster Bay, New York, the family home of our 26th President, was to return it to the 1901-19 era when Theodore Roosevelt, his wife Edith and their six children resided there. After TRís death in 1919, his widow lived there alone until the 1940ís, updating the house to meet her needs and understandably, giving away some furnishings to relatives.
Still 85% of the Sagamore Hill furnishings are original, making the renovation back to the time when Teddy Roosevelt lived there much easier.
To preserve this landmark for the generations to come, curators were anxious to protect the furnishings, draperies, artwork, paneling and floors from the damaging rays of the sun. With that in mind, VISTA Window Film
Dayview, a high tech solar control film that eliminates 99% of the damaging ultraviolet rays was selected. It was also used to reduce glare and eliminate hot spots, saving energy by cutting down heat gain.
The Sagamore Hill installation was a complex task involving some 350 window panes throughout the house. The application of VISTA Window Film had another added benefit: it meant that window shades which previously had been left down could now be raised during daylight hours to open the rooms up to the vast expanse of surrounding lawns and woodlands...knowing the home and its furnishings were protected for many years to come.
