Should your old windows be saved?

August 26, 2010

For those who have expressed an interest in a “Working Windows Workshop”, we’re trying to find a date when we can pull together the experts to hold a workshop. We’ll let you know as soon as we’ve got everything together.

In the meantime, here’s an article from Fine Homebuilding magazine on the subject. If you’re still debating the repair or replace question for your home, you’ll find the information useful. Many of the older homes in our neighborhood were built in the period when windows were constructed from old-growth timber. That’s very stable wood, so investigating repairs is a wise choice.

Several homes in the neighborhood have metal casement windows that open outward. These windows, found on many Tudors, lend alot of character to the homes. There are several good options for interior storms that allow you to keep the old windows and their charm.
