Proper weatherstripping is a critical component to improving the energy efficiency of wood windows and saving them from the landfill. This two-part workshop will focus on how Accurate Machine Made weatherstrip is made and produced by hand in the shop in Maine. The second part of the workshop will discuss the how, what, when, where, and why of weatherstripping, and its use to seal air leaks from windows and doors.
The Window Preservation Alliance's Annual Meeting features two full days of workshops, "shop talk with the pros" learning opportunities, and panel discussion sessions.
