Steve S. provides a couple of his own shop standards he uses to keep his own work from "drifting" into other methods and material without anyone noticing:

Quote:
I know that we adhere to correct restoration procedures, but what is happening on the projects we're not involved with. I know of one project where the contractor started with using Abatron on some sill repairs but switched to Bondo, because he said Abatron was to difficult to use.

1. Use of epoxies engineered to be used for wood repairs.
2. Samples of actual wood repairs with written procedure used, prior to
starting work. The use of Bondo or similar is prohibited.


Do you have shop standards? Are they written down? Would you like to share some of them and tell us how they work?

We are now working on writing the National Window Preservation Standards. The name of the project is the Window Preservation Standards Collaborative.

The standards are being written by tradespeople, for tradespeople. Learn more about it here:
http://www.windowstandards.org

We are actually doing the writing at the WPSC Forum:

I invite you to join us as an Adviser or Stakeholder:
