Event description

Description

Determine if your windows and doors need replacement, and learn the basics of installing windows and doors, replacing weather stripping and preventing air ingress from around your windows. Learn the difference between poor quality and quality doors and windows, and steps for re-installation once they are removed. We will discuss how to prevent water ingress, and creating a proper seal around your windows. We will review window glazing, single glazed, double and triple glazed as well as review the steps for building a window frame and how to install a window and or door. Learn how to check for air leaks, and install caulking and sealants to cut down on air infiltration.

This is a hands-on workshop and participants should expect to use some tools. Please dress appropriately; no loose clothing or dangly jewellery and wear closed-toed shoes.
