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?
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.
New for 2017, LakewoodAlive will also host a Knowing Your Home: Windows 201 workshop in partnership with Lakewood Hardware on Thursday, July 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. This second-level workshop will provide a hands-on demonstration of window repair straight from the experts.

Our workshop series is generously supported by: Citizens Bank, City of Lakewood, Cleveland Lumber Company, Fifth Third Bank, First Federal Lakewood, PNC, Remax Beyond 2000, The University of Akron Lakewood and Third Federal Savings & Loan.
