New review of the book.

Clem Labine, noted preservation publisher, just reviewed the Save America’s Windows book in Traditional Building magazine. Here’s a quote:

The cover of John Leeke’s handbook of window restoration, which contains detailed step-by-step procedures – along with numerous diagrams of historic window construction and details.

John Leeke’s handbook of window restoration contains detailed step-by-step procedures – along with numerous diagrams of historic window construction and details.

“For a set of detailed “how to do it” instructions, there’s the new expanded edition of John Leeke’s  Save America’s Windows. Leeke is a well-known preservationist… He not only describes in well-illustrated detail 15 step-by-step treatments to repair weathered sills and deteriorating sash, but also includes a lot of background information on construction of historical wood windows gleaned from 19th- and early 20th-century trade manuals. The handbook also provides lots of practical tips on glazing and puttying.”
