Window Restoration College October 2-4, Roanoke VA

Save the Date!
October 2-4th
Presented by the Architectural Review Board with training provided by Bob Yapp, noted author and historic preservation planning consultant, the Old Window Restoration College is an intense, hands-on workshop where participants will learn the cost-effective rehab of original double-hung wooden windows.

Instruction includes safe paint and glass removal, application of glazing putty, epoxy repair, weather stripping, and sash installation.

Wooden windows are an important feature of many older buildings, and preserving them is actually ‘greener’ than replacing them.

This college offers an opportunity for both learning and helping to save original windows in a historic, residential, or commercial property.

When: Friday - Sunday, October 2-4, 2009,
Time: 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Location: a residence on Day Avenue (to be announced)
Fee: $125 (includes materials and lunches).

Deadline to register is Tuesday, Sept. 18!
