Wooden Window Repair Methods- Haddam, CT
Wed, Jun 7, 2017, 9:00 AM – Fri, Jun 9, 2017, 5:00 PM EDT
Thousands of wood windows are ripped out of this country’s older and historic buildings each year. This astonishing loss is due in part to the fact that few people remain skilled in the repair and maintenance of wooden windows. In this three-day workshop, Instructor Sally Fishburn will guide participants through practical and economic methods to deal with sash stuck in place with paint, broken glass, rotten sash joints, weathered sills, bowed meeting rails, and frame joint decay. Learn how windows were originally constructed, why some last for centuries and others rot and fall apart after just a few years. Participants will learn to conduct assessment surveys on windows at the Brainerd Academy Building, owned by the Town of Haddam, evaluate window treatment options, plan and cost window repair projects, complete repairs, and how to plan for scheduled window maintenance.
