The Window Workshop

If you’ve ever been intimidated about the prospect of restoring your historic windows you’re not alone. Did you know historic wood windows can last 100+ years and be restored to meet the current energy codes? Did you know you can do all of this yourself?

The Window Workshop is the place to get the finest training in the art of window restoration. Taught by our team of Historic Preservation Advisors you’ll learn the in’s and out’s of your historic windows.
