   Hello.  I'm in the process of switching out the glass in my sidelights and it dawned on me that the sidelights are glazed on the inside but my windows are glazed on the outside.  Is it normal to…Continue

    Morning.  This is not my usual hang out, 1909 homeowner, but it concerns a 1950s rambler.  This was the cover of Saturday's Real Estate section of The Washington Post.  All I can say is Good…Continue

Beloved by squirrels and grackels

   Before my eaves are completely wrapped in hardware cloth does anyone have any suggestions for squirrel and grackel proofing my box eaves and soffits?  Just spent $200 having my attic checked and a hole covered in hardware cloth which just happens to be about five inches down from the hole they chewed two years ago.  How they did it upside down I'll never know.  Would using something like Azek in place of wood stop the pecking and chewing damage to my poor house?  Or should I declare it…See More

"When I bought my house in 2000 there was still harvest gold and avocado green in the kitchen.  And this was a room that the PO had rehabbed after the 970s slumlord sold him the house in the 90s.   I went with classic…"

"    I'm hoping to use something similar to that on my 19th century French door that I've been s-l-o-w-l-y working on.  And they'll be on the "inside".    Amanda(WV) "

The Gockleys replied to Amanda Stroud's discussion Window glazing, inside or outside?
"The glazing is designed to take the beating of the weather and to fail slowly after 15-20+ years. It is easily replaced because it is a soft putty, whereas if the wood had beed exposed to the weather and rotted, it would be a pain to replace. Plus,…"

"  Out of curiousity why is the glazing on the outside?  It seems to me it would be a lot easier to reglaze/repair a window if you could do it from inside the house as opposed to standing outside on a tall ladder.   Amanda(WV)"
