Re: What is clear glass?

I say just ban the use of IGU's all together in original wood sashes!

Re: Wood Storm Window, with weatherstrip (draft)

I dont remember how David Gibney weather stripped his prime window and would be interested in some pics and description on what he used. I really do think you can weather strip the prime adequately and still achieve full easy functionability. I also think this is where the emphasis should be rather ...

Re: Wood Storm Window, with weatherstrip (draft)

Up to this point we have not weather stripped wood storm window either, but with all the comments and discussion I am reconsidering doing so on select storms. I just need to find a weather strip system I like. but I will be adding vent holes in the bottom rails (with a cover) of our fixed glass stor...

Re: Repair Bowed Meeting Rail (draft)

We haven't always had old salvaged sashes to use parts off of, but we're building a fair amount of these and I would agree using salvaged parts is a good practice.

Re: Wood Storm Window, with weatherstrip (draft)

Whether in a rainy climate or a Northern climate or just about where ever, there will be times during the year or even abnormal rainy years where storm windows will cause or create excessive moisture and if this moisture doesn't have a way to be helped along to dry out then the window as a whole wil...

Re: Whole-Building Energy Conservation and Windows

Just wondering how much the weatherized window used at Pine Mountain with weatherized storm window surpassed the IEC code for air infiltration? I think Pete Carroll asked a similer question regarding the incremental affects of adding a weatherized stom window over a non weatherized storm window. Is ...

Re: Wood Storm Window, with weatherstrip (draft)

Probably, maybe. But less convenient and maybe lots more intimidating for an elderly person to do. Much easier to slide or lift an access door to get air moving when needed.

Re: Wood Storm Window, with weatherstrip (draft)

I would think that for the standard of storms with weather stripping, the added comment as part of the standard. Should include the addition of adequate ventilation holes, either through the bottom rail ,with an air tight cover. Or with some other means such as you metioned. I cannot use the standar...

Re: Wood Storm Window, with weatherstrip (draft)

So I was thinking this morning and arguing a bit with Bob about the potential adverse affects of weather stripping wood storm windows. I may be able to agree with this standard for weather stripping storms if we can add to it ( in the same context ) a statement that requires the addition of closable...

Re: Using and Reading the Standards (rough draft)

My customers expect as a result of my restorations of their sashes that they will have eye appeal and look good. In reality they are usually very shocked when I installed their restored sasehs because they were not expecting their old sashes to look as good a they do. that they are functional----and...
