GREAT book! Full of GREAT info and spelled out so anyone can read and understand how to fully restore their windows. You do not need to be a restoration specialist to understand this book. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a window restoration book.

This book includes all the basics for restoring your windows. The instructions are clear and simple and the accompanying photos are excellent. I wish this book was available when we started. It would have saved countless hours of research, collecting the information piecemeal from dozens of sources. It includes just what you need to know, without any extra fluff to amuse or confuse you.What I'd like folks to know, above all else, is that you can restore you windows. We are not the most skilled DIYers, believe me, but we restored our basement windows and original wood storms. In spite of our limited handyman skills, they came out great and, having had that practice, I would not have hesitated to restore the rest, had we had the time. I would encourage anyone who is considering it to read this book, watch a YouTube video or two to boost your confidence further, and start with a window from the basement or a little used room. The first one will take many hours, but you'll improve steadily. You'll be proud of your work and thrilled with the beautiful, premium quality window you'll have for such a small investment in tools and materials.

This book is way overpriced for what is inside and the information that is communicated to the buyer. Save your money and buy another type of old window specific book. I did buy The Window Sash Bible written by Steve Jordan and it is great guide with lots of useful information.

Great DIY book. Scott has a unique writing style that appeals to both seasoned professionals and beginners alike. This book has a conversational tone that will make you feel like he's right there with you answering your "how-to" questions in simple yet thorough explanations. Windows can be relatively easy when using these proven methods of restoration. Read this book and follow these suggestions and you'll LOVE your windows for years and perhaps decades to come!

WOW! this is an amazing book!!! Just like the title says, this book makes restoring windows easy! DIYers, you must have this book!!!
