From the comfort of your workshop/home/office please join us for a day long exploration and sharing of the art of Window Restoration.
We are planning to feature a variety of input - some pre-recorded, some live, some discussion sessions (always a hallmark of WPA gatherings!)
What's on the Agenda? Check out the latest info here: WPA 5th Annual Conference Agenda
Some planned sessions:
Weather strip - how it's made! See the machines in action.
Repairs - techniques and best practices. Please submit good photos and/or video of how you tackle rotted corners, lock bites, wonky jambs.
Rules and Regulations from the building industry regarding windows.
Keynote Speaker is Jeff Siegler of Revitalize or Die. Check your apathy at the door!
Virtual cocktail hour hosted by the master of the hour - David Hoggard of Double Hung Window Restoration in Greensboro, NC. If you remember the wonderful hospitality of 2018 you'll want to join in for more of the fun.
We are hopeful that because this is all online you can block out the day, put down the glazing putty, and come for some good info on our favorite subject - saving original windows. We encourage you to invite your colleagues, your friends who maybe interested in restoring windows as a business, etc. Preservation professionals we want you too!
