Joe Hayes

Duluth Folk School instructor Joe HayesJoe has a passion for old windows, quality craftsmanship, and working with his hands. In a building industry where “discard and replace” has become the mantra, he finds it refreshing to give homeowners with an ethic for renewal a lasting and affordable option for maintaining their original windows.

Joe first began learning the trade of window restoration over a decade ago as a homeowner of a 1916 home in South Minneapolis and has since worked in the field with a variety of restoration professionals. Before restoring windows full time, Joe worked as a Montessori elementary teacher. He now loves sharing his love and knowledge of old windows with anyone willing to listen!
