You’ve likely observed the incessant advertisements on television or radio: “Replace your old, leaky windows with new energy-saving windows.”  But does this actually apply to your home and how do you know whether you should repair or replace?

Our “Windows 101” workshop takes place June 15.

LakewoodAlive will host “Knowing Your Home: Windows 101” on Thursday, June 15, from 7 to 9 p.m. at The Nicholson House (13335 Detroit Avenue).  The ninth workshop of 2017 for this popular home maintenance educational program will focus on the repair and replacement of windows with a major emphasis on wooden windows.

Led by Fred Cortright, this workshop will seek to answer the age-old question: “How do I make my windows stop leaking?!?”  Windows 101 will cover the anatomy of a window, both window and storm, and participants will discover techniques to maximize their windows’ efficiency.
