Pella Window Installation

Project: Waterfront Warehouse Rehab, Episode 4, Part 3

Bob gives a demolition and reconstruction progress report for the work accomplished to date. Eight full dumpsters of debris have already been removed—a large amount for such a small building.

On the exterior, power washing is underway on the front façade, while Bob pays a visit to Jane Walentas, part of DUMBO's growing artist community.

Back on site, new six-by-six double-hung Pella windows are being installed on the fourth floor.

Part 3: Pella Window Installation
Bob meets with Brian Kaley and Tim McFadden from Pella Windows to discuss fenestration for the warehouse rehab project. Pella will be supplying windows similar to those that were used in the original structure. It's a six-over-six-pane double-hung design with a 3-1/2-inch bottom rail. To secure the new window, the crew from Dino's Construction builds a wooden frame with two-by-six framing stock. With the window dry fit into place, Bob discusses the proper methods of insulating the gaps between the frame and the masonry.
Bob Vila heads to the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, for this project involving an abandoned warehouse built in the mid-19th century. Bob's adaptive reuse will yield three ultra-hip apartments with commercial space at street level. Project manager is Bob's oldest son, Chris Vila, who helps guide this complete rehabilitation of a beat-up building in the city that never sleeps.
