ARCHITECTURAL HERITAGE CENTER TO HOLD WINDOW REPAIR WORKSHOP
 
Did you know that you can preserve the historic character of the
windows in an older home while refreshing and repairing them to meet
today’s energy savings goals? Plan to attend a workshop titled, “The
Basics of Wood Window Repair” from 10 a.m. – noon on May 5 at the
Architectural Heritage Center, 701 SE Grand Ave., Portland. (

Original wood windows are the “eyes of a building” and contribute
tremendous charm and authenticity to our older homes. With a focus on
improving function, this workshop will cover the basics that owners of
older homes should know, including: signs of window deterioration,
preventive maintenance and repair practices, plus good ideas about
weatherization. Patty Spencer will share her years of experience in
preserving and restoring the function of original, double-hung, wood
windows found in homes built in the 1940s and earlier. To learn more, or
