Preservation Wilson hosts Old Windows Workshop: Restoration, Repair & Efficiency of Historic Windows

Wilson, North Carolina
Saturday November 11
9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join Preservation Wilson for a day long workshop using the 1916 Nadal House windows as a learning tool

Let us help take the fear out of repairing old windows!  This workshop will help you understand the process of repairing old windows instead of replacing them with substitute materials. Wood windows often fall prey to the belief that they are not energy efficient.  Properly repaired wood windows can be as energy efficient as replacement windows, and last much longer than the 10 to 20 years life span of replacement windows. This workshop is geared to residential and commercial property owners, do-it yourselfers, building contractors, and all-around old building enthusiasts.

$25 – Workshop with lunch included 

Advance Registration Required by November 8th
