Brendan, welcome as an Adviser.

Brendan is an Historic Preservation Specialist with the District of Columbia State Historic Preservation Office. His office also plays the role of a city agency and therefore have review authority over building permits in the city, handling many permits for replacement windows. He represents his office's entire review staff and offers comments on technical aspects of window construction and durability, home owner view point, and replacement sales tactics.

I conduct ASTM performance testing on windows and doors for air and water intrusion and would like to get involved with WPSC to conduct this testing in support of this new preservation standard. Although I now live in Phoenix, I am from Boston / Cape Cod and have a natural affinity for historic windows and doors.
My last historic project was an infrared moisture survey of the complete interior/exterior of the Old State House in Boston July 2010.


Hi Ray. You'll want to keep an eye on the weatherization section of the forum:

and in particular, this new initiative for the Standards project to connect with the Lawrence Berkeley Labs on window testing:

Hi John,
I realize I am a little late to the party, however seems there is much work left to do, are you accepting any more advisors? I am an independent contractor and tradesman in Richmond Va with about 40% of my work in the window restoration and puttying field. I have been doing window work for over twelve years on residences from the early 1700's to the 1940's to metal sash commercial and industrial buildings, have thousands of hours and hundreds of windows successfully saved and functioning. I have a small shop where we make wood replacement parts from salvaged "old growth" sashes, strip and refinish window hardware, salvage window parts such as pulleys, weights, wavy glass (which gets graded by age and type) and all salvaged parts get reused back in the windows we restore. Have experience with making own primers and putty with traditional ingrediants. I would like very much to be an advisor and work with the collaborative in any way possible.
Michael George

Hi Michael

Welcome to the Standards project.

It's never to late to do some good work. The Adviser roster is full, but you're certainly welcome as a Stakeholder. The opportunity to participate is about the same.

I'd like to hear more about your making primer and putty. How long have you been doing it? What are your results? You might post that over in the Painting & Glazing section:

Hi
I would like to be considered as an advisor. My experience is 40 years of stained glass work. From new fabrication to all sorts of restoration. I've been in the field so long that I remember when we just did "repairs". Today the buzz words are "restoration" and "conservation". I have worked for private homes, public buildings ,Churches and museums. A few years ago I helped organize a national stained glass organization dedicated to education (www.Americanglassguild.org). This organization has given out over $25,000 in scholarships in the last 6 years. I am VERY interested in this standards project as there is a group of stained glass professionals considering doing a similar thing for our field.

Thanks for your consideration

If there is a need for one more Advisor, I would like to request an invitation! I'm owner and founder of Window Menders (Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, WA). My mission is to save people from window replacement. With my associate, Larisa Zimmerman, I specialize in pre-1950 wood and metal windows. We work on site, and offer a full range of services, including standard repair, wood repair/replacement, glazing and glass replacement and weatherization (including custom-built storm sash).

I received training and certification in 2010 from Peninsula College, the Port Townsend School of Woodworking, and Fort Worden (WA), and established my own practice shortly thereafter. I sit on the board of the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation, representing southwest Washington, where I help identify endangered properties and advocate for and promote preservation activities.

There are very few window restoration specialists here on the left coast; I hope to improve our visibility and encourage more awareness of, and engagement in, historic preservation out here. I'm very excited to have found this group, and want to help any way I can!

Thank you for your fine work.

Best regards,

Greetings John,
I posted a reply to an active post and realized that I do not have a posted profile. I have been active in the restoration field in Southern Oregon for more than 30 years. Currently my little company is involved in the window restoration at the Holly Theatre in Medford , Oregon. In addition to 'low lander' woodworking ( 'dutchmen") We have removed and reglazed over 250 individual panes of glass, (900+ corners!; over 500 lineal feet of 'struck' glazing line... I could go on and on but I am glad all that remains to do is rehang and reset hardware, the weights are all on chain.
