Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Window Restoration Workshop

Window Restoration Workshop  Your old windows have a lot of life in them yet! 

A good fitting old window with a  tight storm window is very comparable to a replacement window in terms of energy efficiency.  And a replacement window is never comparable to an original in terms of architectural integrity or life expectancy.

Your original windows can last one hundred years or more and after restoration can last one hundred more. That’s not the case with replacement windows. We often see inspectors pointing out problems with replacement windows during inspections even though the windows are only a few years old.

There are companies that can restore windows for you or you can learn to do it yourself.  The Newton Historical Society will be hosting a workshop on Saturday where you can learn to restore your own windows.

Window restorer Ryan Pirro will lead a hands-on workshop. You’ll learn how to weather strip and repair your windows.

The workshop is co-sponsored by Green Decade/Newton.

Cost is $30 or $15 for members of Green Decade or of the Newton Historical Society.

The workshop is scheduled for Saturday, November 6, 2010 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.

You can register and pay online or contact Green Decade for more information at 617-965-1995.
