Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was looking for a book that would guide me step-by-step through repair of my original double-hung windows, but this book isn't that. The book gives a high level overview of the various kinds of windows you'll run into in older construction, and then gives a high-level overview of various methods of repairing and improving them. It never gets into very much detail - I'm sure this was quite the useful book when published but there really isn't any information here that isn't available with a quick online search.
