Window Preservation Standards Collaborative
Quarto, pp. 107. Thoroughly illustrated with b/w photos and drawings.
An invaluable resource for the preservationist, this book catalogs specific methods for the assessment, maintenance, repair, preservation and weatherization of older and historic wooden windows. Many detailed methods, procedures and materials are included, as well as basic strategies for saving older and historic windows. The book was born from the efforts of five window experts--Bob Yapp, John Leeke (editor), Jim Turner, David Gibney, and Duffy Hoffman--who saw the need for a published collection of standards and best practices for window restoration, preservation, and repair. The Standards were developed and written by more than 100 window specialists who collaborated from all across the United States and Canada. The numerous illustrations are clear and helpful, and the methods presented are up to date and represent the current best practices in the field. The WPSC has done an excellent job with this publication, which is a useful and important contribution in the area of historic preservation.
