Re: Page 06

I agree with Patrick's post above regarding performance/prescriptive standards. I think more testing will be necessary to determine if the performance demonstrated by the Pine Mountain tests is greater than can be expected overall. @How to Use the Standards: Architects/Engineers/Specifiers require a...

Specifying Performance Requirements

Energy performance is a significant aspect of what drives this project. Having a performance standard for rehabilitated historic windows will not only provide a standard for judging the success of a project, but also can be a selling point when an owner makes a decision whether to save their histori...

@Energy Studies: Provide a bibliography of available studies, with publishers and dates, to help the reader track down the source information. A table with results and data for these various studies may help to easily summarize the information for purposes of this document. Given that many of these ...

Re: Page 23

A couple more comments: 1. I agree with John Lindtner's post. 2. Weatherstripping methods should reflect several different approaches. As we saw during the Summit, there are several approaches one can take to weatherstripping a sash, and all have performance. Because historic windows can vary so rad...

@Quality of Results: Editorial Comment - the descriptions here for best, adequate and unacceptable work are great. They clearly delineate what separates good workmanship from poor, and the illustrations really help communicate why these are an issue. This can be used not only to educate craftsperson...

I suggest that the document be subdivided at this location. Material and product specifications, standards for quality and performance, defniitions and the like form a technical specification, while the treatments and methodologies which start on Page 15 are more of a technical manual. I don't think...

Re: Page 08

Provide diagrams for profiles, such as muntins, to help with illustrating terms (i.e., what is a "glazing rabbet"?). Include diagrams for steel windows as well. The terms on the diagrams should be cross-referenced with a glossary or list of definitions. This will help with arriving at an a...

@Dutchman: This term needs to be defined. Regarding adhesives, the Titebond website indicates some performance and material specifications for their product which may be helpful in developing a non-proprietary spec. These include: -Aliphatic Resin, as a material specification for the product. -Meets...
