Description:

Windows are character-defining features of homes. Working with homeowners to advise them on the best course of action takes knowledge of window construction, conditions assessment, local historic district regulations, energy savings, and cost management. 

This webinar will explore residential window options for properties in historic districts. A review of repair options will be addressed along with options for replacement, particularly if historic windows are missing. 

Considerations for compatible fenestration will be discussed if additions are planned for historic homes. Case studies will be shared.

Learning Objectives:

  • Investigate local historic preservation ordinances for planning a window project in a local historic district.
  • Evaluate material selection for new windows.
  • Assess windows to make the repair or replace decision.
  • Design key architectural features for compatibility with given architectural styles and historic window design.
