Old House Guy

Newsletter & Updates

Welcome to our September 2018 newsletter!

This month we would like to make you aware of the need for new storm windows. The new ones have low-e glass which provides the most insulation you can get. Interior storm windows are another option and allow your historic windows to be seen.

Remember you can help save the character of other old homes by referring our website to friends, neighbors and your local historical society. Education is the best way to save history and to keep your neighborhood looking good! Follow us and do it right!

Hope you enjoy our stuff!
