  Good Repair Guide: Timber Windows


Until the 1970s, the main material used for window frames and sashes in New Zealand houses was timber.

A large proportion of houses still have timber windows, and these can last for a very long time if well maintained and repaired when necessary.

This guide covers the repair of timber windows using materials and styles to match the existing.

This book looks at the common problems, how to repair and replace windows, rules and regulations and health and safety.
