Hi everyone. I couldn't make the summit due to my work load and selling my house but I would very much like to help out.

I'm currently in Vermont and do window restoration along with other things pertaining to the preservation trades. I'm the owner of New Venture Restorations and will soon be relocating to the Cincinnati area where I will continue to do the same work. I'm also working out some details with the Over The Rhine foundation in Cincinnati to do some hands on training classes for window restoration late this fall.

John et al,

Sorry I've been silent so long, just unbelievably busy. I've been following along in the shadows but felt that if I am going to benefit from all of this work, then I'd better get involved in whatever capacity might be needed.

I own Double Hung, LLC in Greensboro, NC and we've been fixin' windows here for 12 years. My company has 11 employees and we keep 300-400 windows - mainly wood, but some metal - under contract at any one time. Although we began primarily as residential restorers, of late we have skewed more to the commercial/institutional market because we have grown large enough to handle 200-300 windows for a project and meet tight construction schedules. However, because I found that we were neglecting the average homeowner, I recently started another company to handle the special needs of the residential market. Double Hung Residential, LLC began operations two months ago and is working through a backlog of smaller projects that had accumulated. I have also folded our wood storm window/screen manufacturing operation into the Residential auspices.

Over the years, in addition to running the business, I have consulted (for pay!) with several architects in spec formulation, helped re-write Greensboro's local Historic District Guidelines, conducted scores of workshops and presented the window restoration Gospel to any group who wants to listen. But what I am most proud of is my efforts at actually teaching the trade. I have conducted two two-week-long classes for the Historic Trades Program at Edgecombe Community College in Tarboro, NC and this fall I will do a similar stint at the famed artisan training facility know as Penland in the mountains of NC.

All of this is to say that I really want to be involved. I truly meant to attend the Kentucky gathering, but my schedule just wouldn't allow it. Although I am applying for an advisory position, I am happy to help in anyway I can - I could even be the guy who goes for pizza when needed.

Lastly - I notice that Doug Miller with The Christman Company has applied here. I am currently working with Doug on Garrett Hall at the University of Virginia. He would give a great perspective as the project manager for one of the nation's finest general contractors who takes historic preservation very seriously. We are also working with Christman on the Old Federal Building in Grand Rapids, MI and find them to be extraordinarily responsible stewards of historic fabric.

Hi David

You operate one of the bigger shops that I know about. I'd like to invite you to be an Adviser offering your point of view as the manager of one of these larger shops. Of course, your insight on methods and materials will be welcome too.

Hi Andy

I'm just catching up after returning from the Summit.

Keep an eye on the discussion forum here. Folks at the Summit said they would be posting their comments here.

I'm looking forward to your views on using steam, since I know you use both the stainless steel steam chamber as well as the portable steam boxes. Perhaps you could compare the two. Is there a significant difference in the de-glazing procedure you use with each one?

Hello WPSC,

I would be interested in consideration as an Advisor.

My particular perspective is that of a traditional sash maker with 20 years of experience making sash and windows.

Best regards,

Justin Smith

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 John,

Congratulations on this wonderful collaborative. As a stained glass conservator and consultant for museums, colleges, and public libraries I have years of experience working around wooden window issues. I would like to volunteer my experiences and observations as an Adviser and believe I can contribute to the effort.

Thanks for your consideration.

Please consider granting me advisor status. I am a Historic Preservation Speicialist with the District of Columbia State Historic Preservation Offfice. My office also plays the role of a city agency and therefore have review authority over building permits in the city. Our local regulations require a permit to replace windows if they meet a rigorous set of standards. The standards are structred to compel restoration but only require restoration in select situations. Our office reviews 4000 permits a year. A good percentage of those are for windows so the conversation with owners and tradespeople to convince them to restore rather than replace is nearly constant.

As an advisor, my contributions will represent the opinions and advice of our entire review staff. We can offer comments on techncial aspects of window construction and durability, home owner view point, and replacement sales tactics.

Thank you for your consideration,
