Any of the books listed above include lots of guidance for the home restoration DIY-er. You can also check You Tube postings—which are constantly growing—for demonstrations of basic window repair and maintenance such as:
Replacing cords and rehanging sashes
Removing old glazing and reglazing a window
Replacing broken glass (including reglazing)
Tips on “unsticking” windows
If you’re taking on a project involving stripping off old paint and glaze, be very careful in any use of a heat gun as heat can crack the glass. Expect to break a few panes in the process, and budget for replacement glass.
