What Are The Levels of Historic Window Restoration?


Level 1. The Mechanical Makeover

The first level of window restoration is The Mechanical Makeover. It is the art of taking the historic wood double hung window apart and putting it back together so that it works like it’s supposed to. It’s fundamental, yet easily overlooked. Many people see an old windows’ disarrayed state and assume many things about how to restore it, but seldom consider taking it apart and putting it back together again.
