Restore vintage wood windows with sash master Duffy Hoffman.

Whether you're an owner, contractor, craftsman, architect, or someone who simply loves old windows, join us for a 4-day workshop to rehabilitate vintage wood windows. Instead of giving up on old wood windows, now you can restore one of the most important architectural features of any historic home.

* Take a wood sash through the restoration process--from start to finish.

* Map and number windows prior to removal.

* Disassemble, stabilize, and reassemble window units.

* Repair or replace window chains or ropes.

* Restore, splice, or replace deteriorated and missing members.

* Review paint-stripping materials and methods and routine maintenance.

* Use a duty-specific steam box to safely remove old paint and glaze.

* Reglaze windows and replace broken or damaged glass.

* Brush up on painting and refinishing tools, techniques, and materials.

* Incorporate lead-safe work practices (RRP certification included).
