Window Workshop Saturday

The information below was provided to Plaintalker by the Historic Preservation Commission. This event is a good example of the kind of practical outreach needed in a city whose main asset is its housing stock.

Saturday, Oct. 15, 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Workshop on Historic Wood Windows, a program aimed at homeowners whose dwellings have wooden windows, and are trying to decide whether to repair and preserve them, or do something else.

Developed by John Favazzo, an architect certified in historic restoration and a member of the Plainfield Historic Preservation Commission, the session will include practical advice from two local contractors who also specialize in restoration.

Favazzo said, “The purpose of this workshop is to provide property owners with the technical information you need to make cost and energy efficiency decisions when considering performing repair or upgrades to your windows.

“Even if you are not in an historic district, this workshop is intended to be helpful in planning for maintaining, repairing, and weatherizing your wood windows.

“If replacement with new windows cannot be avoided, you will be better equipped to make an aesthetically pleasing, cost efficient, energy efficient purchase that will be a wise investment and add value to your home.”

Presented by the Plainfield Historic Preservation Commission at the Plainfield Public Library, Park Avenue and Eighth Street, the event is free and open to the public.
