New Life for Old Double-Hung Windows

There’s a good reason why traditional double-hung windows have long lives: They use a simple layout and have basic operation. Even the best old windows can use a little help, though. New Orleans restoration carpenter John Michael Davis describes his methods for upgrading traditional double-hung windows to make them energy-efficient and smooth while also keeping them historically authentic. Davis begins by disassembling the windows; repairing and/or upgrading parts; sealing gaps to halt air leaks; then tuning up the channels, weights, ropes, and pulleys.
