Reinventing Old Windows

Posted on: December 21, 2011


As owner of an “older home” (c1948), I’ve an interest in stories on replacement windows. The noise reduction! the increased insulation! As a Blindcrafter Team Member, found on the web at CellularWindowShades.com, the conversation also includes how shades can help older windows — which are often better built windows — out of the landfills.

Over the weekend, I watched a 60 Minutes episode on the demolition of foreclosed home in the Columbus, Ohio, area — truly, a great waste – of money, energy, goods; not to mention the foolishness of removing people from their homes which now are fodder for criminals stripping a property for items of a little worth (the guy on the segment mentioned: “They’ve even taken the kitchen sink!”).

So it was with great interest I read about a Vermont man who has been in the business of “redressing” older windows. The story ran in the free weekly newspaper, 7 Days, and was written by Amy Lilly. The company — which is bound to get some much needed publicity, is Open Sash, owned by Christopher Pratt. Amy’s story really tells you all you need to know, so I will let it speak to you – just click on the photo:
