WORKING WINDOWS: A Guide to the Repair and Restoration of Wood Windows,

3rd edition

 

Terry Meany

 

“The best guide on the subject.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer

 

Older homes are gaining in value, especially when the original craftsman details are well maintained, such as antique lead panes and wood windows. And refinishing beautiful old windows happens to be one do-it-yourself project that a home owner can actually accomplish without professional assistance. This is the only completely illustrated guide to repairing and refinishing every part of an old window, from weather stripping, pulleys, sashes, hopper vents, and casings to old hinges, paint, and glass. Completely updated with a new section on cleaning windows.

 

“Written with excellent detail, helpful diagrams, simple and clear instructions, and a good bit of Meany’s wry humor to make it a lively read. It is an absolutely indispensable part of any . . . home library.”—Amazon.com

 

*Media interviews on home improvement and TV talk shows

*Review mailings to do-it-yourself shows and home magazines

 

Terry Meany is known as “Mr. Window” for his expertise in window repair. He lives with his wife in Kenmore, Washington.
