Almost any person engaged in home repair sooner or later confronts one of the essential parts of the house: the window. It lets in light and air; it also can be a source of incredible frustration and expense if it is barely moving or inoperable. In Working Windows , Terence Meany has written the most comprehensive, accurate, and detailed book on the subject, providing all the essential information needed to repair, replace, or restore almost any window, from double-hung to fixed.With rare humor and accessibility, the author explains repair techniques, describes tools and materials, and discusses the different types of windows found in most older buildings and homes. There is detailed information on refinishing, repainting, weather-stripping, replacing glass or rotted wood, repair or replacement of moldings, and even confronting the unusual pivoting window or leaded glass. Filled with line drawings and practical tips, Working Windows is the definitive book on the care and repair of wood windows.
