How to Avoid Having to Trash Your Stuck, Leaky Windows
Presentation by Ed and Batya Sanchez of Window Restoration and Repair, Inc.
The Highland Park Heritage Trust is sponsoring a talk by Ed Sanchez of Window Restoration and Repair.  This event is a must for anyone considering the replacement of windows, especially on older homes with original wood or steel windows.  Mr. Sanchez will talk about how to successfully preserve and repair wood and steel windows.  The approach is proven to help retain the value of a house, maintain its architectural features, and save money. 

7:30PM Annual Election Meeting
Election committee will present a suggested list of Board of Directors for the 2010 Fiscal Year.  Nominations are welcome from the floor.  All members in good standing are eligible to run for the Board of Directors and to vote.

8:30PM Adjournment

About the speaker:   Ed Sanchez originally began working in the window replacement business in 1983, and opened his own window replacement company in 1986.  He lost faith in replacement windows because they didn’t last as long as the originals and he decided to follow his inclination toward historic preservation.  Ed and his long time friend, Scott Goldfarb, started the new company Window Restoration and Repair in 2000.   The unusual offering of this company has led to articles in many local papers such as the Glendale News Press, Pasadena Star News, Larchmont Chronicle, and Press Telegram and recommendations in the Daily Variety and Cottages and Bungalows.   Many of the articles can be read in their entirety in the press section of the company website:  www.window-restoration-repair.com  Window Restoration and Repair has done restoration work for the Bembridge House, the Hotel Laguna, the historic building that houses the Cheesecake Factory in Pasadena on Fair Oaks and Colorado, the original country club for the Country Club Park district in Los Angeles and many other designated historic buildings.
