Tim finished our attic window and we couldn't be more pleased! It's such an upgrade and a huge relief to me to have the storm frame which split the window sashes gone. Thanks again for the connection and the Home Preservation Program. I will definitely be in touch with any additional questions and we are hoping to have Tim do some more window work in the future.”  Nathan Ticknor, Westgate homeowner

Last summer, Preservation Director Susan Keeny was contacted by Nathan Ticknor regarding some needed repairs to his historic home in Westgate. One top concern was a unique wood attic window that required complete restoration.

Through our Home Preservation Program, Susan was able to provide Nathan with a list of professional historic window contractors. Included on that list were attendees from our Window Warriors Program, a three-day intensive window restoration training workshop held last fall. 

Nathan contacted workshop graduate Tim Albon who completed the window restoration. As stated in his testimony above, Nathan was impressed by Tim’s craftsmanship and thrilled with the results!
