The 2012 California Preservation Conference will be held in Oakland – a city with great beauty, vibrant culture, new industries and innovation. In just 3 days you will gain a year’s worth of education and networking with 125 speakers and 500+ expected attendees.
Educational sessions cover a range of topics such as preservation basics, economic development, new technologies for historic buildings, planning for change, industrial reuse and preservation in the 21st Century. Wooden Window will be leading one of these sessions in its workshop:
Water and Wood as Frienemies: Repairing Wood Windows and Testing for Performance
Tending to your building, and especially your building’s windows, means recognizing when water has crossed the line from friendship to mortal enemy. This mobile session, conducted at Wooden Window’s factory, will take the participant through the identification process of wood deterioration, a hands-on session of wood and glazing repair techniques, and a demonstration of water testing in-service
windows. Participants will also have the opportunity to see state of the art robotic technology used to make historic reproductions of window components.
