Wooden windows are almost a thing of the past.

A client asked if I could repair a few dilapidated window sashes. She purchased a property, because she "fell in love" with the detached bunkhouse on the back of the land, and especially loved the old windows.

She thanked me several times for understanding, and also thanked me for not telling her to replace the windows with modern "maintenance free" windows, as other contractors had been advising. There is sentimental attachment to this aesthetic, and she was thrilled that I was willing to repair them to serviceable (albeit not perfect) condition.
