Properly installed wood windows are beautiful and functional, but their restoration can be challenging. Let Terry Meaney, aka Mr. Window, guide you through the repair and refinishing of every part of an old window, from weather stripping, pulleys, sashes, hopper vents and casings to old hinges, paint and glass.

His book is deeply knowledgeable, comprehensive and surprisingly fun.

"The best guide on the subject..". - Seattle Seatle Times/Post Intelligencer

"Whether you simply need to eliminate drafts or want to tackle complex stripping, author Meany is sure to steer you in the right direction. Remember, the windows really are the eyes of your home." - Timber Homes Illustrated

"Assuming you have a reason to repair old, single-pane windows instead of replacing them with insulated glass windows, Terence Meany's Working Windows. . . could come in handy. Meany, who calls himself Mr. Window, has some neat tricks up his sleeve. . . . " - Journal of Light Construction

"Working Windows leaves the subject of window design and installation to other authors, and instead concentrates on something more basic to homeowners: getting the windows you already have to work properly for what they were designed and installed to do." - Woodshop News

“a healthy dose of humor and lots of detail as it tells the basics of how to restore, repair or replace virtually any kind of window.” - Booklist
