Repairing your home's old windows is one of the most fulfilling restoration projects you can do. Once you understand that basic idea of how they work, you can repair them yourself.
Please see my past newsletter articles on the subject. Also, see Terence Meany's wonderful book on the subject, "Working Windows", which can be ordered by your local bookstore or purchased online.
As for craftspeople, I don't have any referrals, but we do plan on doing a couple of hands-on workshop demonstrations this year. Perhaps you would be interested in hosting our workshop (and getting a couple of windows fixed, to boot).
