Association for Preservation Technology International:
Registration is now open for a Wood Window Repair Workshop and Certification Course, hosted by the City of San Antonio Office of Historic Preservation. The event is part of the office's Rehabber Club initiative. The workshop itself will be led by Steve Quillian of Wood Window Makeover, one of the industry's best instructors. This course features four registration options, ranging from beginner-level to advanced.
Topics covered in the 2-day weekend course (August 18-19) will include stripping, reglazing, and refinishing, as well as the tools, terminology, and techniques behind wood window repair.
An advanced workshop will be held the week of August 21-25 and will cover mortise and tenon joinery, constructing new sashes in the field and fitting them into existing frames (scribing, planing, and cutting), casement hardware options, and more. This workshop is geared towards professionals seeking a deep understanding of complex window repair and reconstruction, as well as individuals looking to make wood window repair their business.
About the venue: The event will take place at a historic home in the Monticello Park Historic District in San Antonio. Constructed in the 1930s, this grand Spanish Eclectic house features four sets of casement windows on the first floor that were custom designed for the home. The house is currently undergoing a full interior remodel, and these windows will be part of the finishing touches.
Additionally, the owner of this home will benefit immensely from this work. Lydia and her family have gone through significant hardships recently, including a fire in the house. This course will provide much-needed repairs to the most complex windows in the house. Your participation will make a difference, and will help make Lydia's house feel like a home!
