Window Repair

Window repair and restoration requires a little bit of knowledge, a bit of experience, a few tools and materials, and considerable care and patience. You have three choices: have someone else do the job ($100-$300 per window for a complete restoration), have replacement windows installed ($200-$500 per window), or do it yourself ($10 per window). For those with the knack, desire, time and patience, below is a list of steps. Hopefully your windows won't require all of these!

For detailed instructions, I recommend John Leeke's book "Save Your Wood Windows".
