The sessions taking place on Friday the 19th will be classroom style and cover everything you need to know about wood windows, including how you can make them more energy efficient without replacing them and how to be safe when dealing with the potential of lead paint. Considering a restoration project? Don’t miss Chick McBrien, Marvin Windows and Doors, talk about research, planning, window assessment, standards, and historic tax credits with concern to historic restoration projects.
We will have window restoration specialist and National Trust Advisor Jim Turner, of Turner Restoration, talk about window restoration and will be available at the end of the day for an “Ask an Expert” session. If you have old windows that you would like to get advice on or an expert’s opinion about, please bring your pictures and your information with you to this workshop and ask Jim! He can answer your questions about both wood and steel windows. If you don’t need expert advice than you can join us for a tour of the Community Matters complex and learn about the amazing projects and work that this organization has been able to do in the Lower Price Hill neighborhood.
