Just Sashes tomorrow

John from Just Sashes comes to tell me if rehabbing our wooden windows is a do-able thing tomorrow.

UPDATE:

He didn't make it last Wednesday, so we rescheduled for today (5/12) at 7:00 am. It is now 8:00, and I haven't heard anything yet. I really hope he calls back.

UPDATE AGAIN:

He never called back. I have called every day since Monday. It is Saturday now. I hope nothing happened to them.

I am also beginning to worry that it is me. Does he just not want to work with me, so he blows off 2 appointments without calling to turn me off without him just saying "I don't want the job"

I'd be curious to know what just sashes has to say. New windows are more cost effective in the long run. Like you, I'm not crazy about new windows since the cost would be enormous for all of the windows in our house. I was lucky in that only the upstairs windows were painted, so I decided to "fix them". The link below shows how I did it with v-bronze. I must tell you it is time consuming and boring. After I finished, the windows are good and tight and work very well, but I still get a little bit of air coming in where the rope is channeld at the side of the window. Still it is much better. Hope it helps.

Thanks for the pictures. I think it will help. I plan to use John for what I can't do, like the seriously broken pieces, but I do plan to rehab what I can by myself.
