Repairing and Restoring Old Windows

July 25, 2020 | 9am-1pm

Sherburne History Center, 10775 27th Ave SE, Becker MN 55308

Event Description

Ever think to yourself, are my wood windows worth saving? Can I repair them myself? Will I save money on my energy bill? (Answers: Yes, yes, and yes!)

Join window specialist Paul Schmidt for a day all about windows. Paul will dispel common myths about old wood windows, explain the difference between original and replacement windows, and demonstrate common repairs that you can do at home. You'll get a thorough overview on how to repair drafts, reglaze windows, fix rotted wood, and improve overall window operation. Most importantly, you'll learn why old wood windows can be just as energy efficient as replacements.

Hosted at the Sherburne History Center in Becker, this workshop considers the unique challenges facing homeowners hoping to tackle rehab or restoration projects in their older homes.

This class is part of the rehab education program of Rethos: Places Reimagined in partnership with the Morrison Co. Historical Society. We are proud to offer a variety of classes for homeowners, students, Realtors, and others who love old buildings. The Rethos education program is funded in part by the Arts & Cultural Legacy Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society. Partial funding for this project was also provided by Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs).
