In this second part of a comprehensive workshop on repairing and restoring double hung windows, we look at single leaf spring bronze weatherstripping. While spring bronze is traditionally used for doors and swinging casement style windows, it can also be adapted to double hung windows. It provides a number of advantages over the tongue and groove style weather strips usually found on double hung windows. Among the benefits of spring bronze weatherstripping is the easier maintenance of the window, tighter air sealing, and reduced rattling. This workshop will include a demonstration on installation as well as a demonstration on how to convert your window from tongue and groove to spring bronze weatherstrips.
You needn’t have attended the first part of this workshop to attend this second part.
