On the Care and Keeping of Old Wood Windows

On June 1, preservation architect Jack Alvarez, who serves as the architect member of Hudson's Historic Preservation Commission, conducted a seminar on the maintenance and repair of historic windows at the Historic Albany Foundation's "Jamb Session." An article by Matthew Hamilton about that event, which articulates the arguments for keeping a building's original windows and includes tips for approaching a repair project, appeared in the Times Union last Thursday: "Clear favorites: Retaining old windows preserves architecture and dollars."

In the fall, when a homeowner's fancy rightly turns to heat retention and energy conservation, Alvarez will be conducting a similar workshop right here in Hudson.
