Wood Windows Restoration and Repair

This all-day course with founder/owner of Vintage Woodworks, Jim Stiven, covers the construction and operation of double-hung wood windows and a full demonstration of the disassembly and repairs to a double hung wood window. Learn how to open painted shut windows, how to repair dropped window weights and broken sash cords, how to replace broken panes, properly paint a wood window, and how to install weather stripping. The course will discuss storm windows and the strengths and weaknesses of new window technologies, and why wood windows remain the best option in heritage buildings.
