Weatherization, Wood Windows, and Sustainability Resources
The National Trust for Historic Preservation has prepared a Weatherization Guide for Older and Historic Buildings. This guide includes a wealth of information about windows, roofing, mechanical systems, energy audits, and government incentives. Please link here for more information: www.preservationnation.org/issues/weatherization/. The National Trust has a Historic Wood Windows Tip Sheet that includes information on retaining or repairing wood windows and also gives tips on how to improve their performance. You can download the tip sheet at this link: www.preservationnation.org/about-us/regional-offices/what-is-preservation/additional-resources/2009-Revised-Window-Tip-Sheet.pdf.
