Window Restoration Workshop

March 13, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - March 14, 2020 @ 8:30 pm


Join us for HVHP Restoration Training Program’s second Winter/Spring 2020 workshop.

The Window Restoration Workshop will be held Friday, March 13 + Saturday, March 14th.

The class will be taught by experts Emily Majer of White Clay Kill Preservation and Ben Brandt of Newburgh Sash & Restoration. The workshop will include lectures and demonstrations.

Windows serve as an essential interior and exterior building feature, impacting its vintage character and the historic fabric of the wall plane. Proper maintenance and repair of wood windows extend their functionality and contribute to the historic character of the edifice. With guidance from our preservation specialists, participants learn how to make their historic windows work using a combination of old-fashioned craftsmanship and modern know-how. Participants practice techniques to restore a wood sash from start to finish and review routine maintenance measures to extend the life of historic windows. Prior woodworking experience is helpful but not required.

Participants will learn the steps to take a wood sash through the restoration process, including:

-Identifying the parts and functions of a traditional wood window;
-Proper tools and hands-on methods to safely remove old paint and glazing putty;
-How to utilize specialized epoxies to repair deteriorated window pieces;
-How to cut glass and reglaze restored sashes;
-Proper methods and materials of paint and painting;
-How to install restored sashes;
-Techniques and options for optimizing efficiency of historic windows.
-This hands-on workshop takes place in a professional window restoration workshop.

The cost for two full 7-hours days, including all materials, tools, and lunch, is $380. To ensure an exceptional learning experience, class size is limited; however, a minimum of 6 participants is required to hold the workshop.
