Beginning Historic Wood Window Preservation



Canceled: Due to COVID-19, this course has been canceled, but will likely be offered in 2021.

This hands-on workshop will introduce participants to the basics of wood window preservation, including documentation, stripping, scraping and sanding, back-bedding and glazing, and painting. The course will also cover purified linseed oil products and their use as a comprehensive treatment system for preserving wood windows. To compliment hands-on work, morning lectures will cover topics such as the history of paint and windows; why we preserve historic windows; how to identify the best window treatment alternative; and how to apply the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties to your window project.
