Preserve This: Wine and Windows - Restoring Historic Wood Windows

Learn the specifics of why restored historic wood windows are superior to replacement windows. A demonstration will be given to identify the basic tools needed in restoration, repair, and maintenance of your historic wooden windows. Methods included will be Dutchman repairs, epoxy repairs, paint stripping, painting, glazing, and rope and weight replacement. A discussion of the use of old-style wavy glass and quality storm windows, as well as some product recommendations, will be covered.

Presenter: Jack P. Patchin, owner of “Ol’ House Experts,” has over 30 years’ experience in the construction/restoration field. Jack has had the opportunity to restore wood windows for structures as old the mid-1700s and has also reconstructed new wooden windows for homes, barns and outbuildings. He served nine years on the maintenance crew for Taliesin Preservation, Inc. conducting maintenance and restoration work for buildings located on Frank Lloyd Wright’s Wisconsin estate. In addition, he has presented workshops and seminars for local preservation organizations at the community college level. Jack is a member of numerous organizations, including the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana and Preservation Trades Network.
