Re: Steam Deglazing, whole sash (draft)

Perhaps including a line something like: Results may vary depending on the age of the window and size of glass. Dwell time of sash should be tested and started at 20 minutes in the steam cabinet while glass is still in the sash. If the putty and paint are still too hard and there is no glass breakag...

Perhaps include examples:

Traditional: Dutchmen repairs.

Re: Purpose and Acceptance (draft)

I totally agree with these statements, although an architect reading this for the first time not knowing much about window preservation would probably think there are too many opinions mixed into these opening statements and therefore question the entire document. Perhaps the "make as much mone...

Weatherization Materials

Ideas shared by David Clark: Pulley covers can also be added to the lower sash pulleys in the late fall & winter. They reduce air infiltration into the room but typically signify that the exterior casings may have gaps and require caulking. They are attached with screws but may not fit over all ...

Re: Page 28

General comment: This approach requires roughly 1 hour of time and costs about $10 in materials. The air panels can last several seasons if cared for and not abused. It is not recommended for houses with curious pets or small children who can easily damage the shrink film. The air panel should be re...

@Materials
- museum glass is effective in reducing glare and helps with seeing the wavy glass behind it
- choose quartersawn tight grained yellow pine from a lumber yard to make the storm windows
- elastomeric paints should be avoided since they offer minimal if any vapor permeability

Re: Page 23

Weatherstripping in general I think it would be appropriate to comment on the systems that require the least change to the actual sashes. Some systems require cutting slots/kerfs in the sides of the stiles and the rails. Also, most systems that include weatherstrip on the bottom of the sash or sill ...
