MINOR WINDOW REPAIRS

Do you have a window that you can't pry open? Or a few that suffer from smudges, streaks or torn screens? If so, it's time you got those windows looking and working like new. Here are some simple home maintenance techniques that will get your windows in shape in no time.

Project Steps

UN-STICK STUCK WINDOWS

Hurried paint jobs can lead to stuck windows when paint gets between the window sashes (the moving frame that holds the glass pane in place) and the window stops (the inside edges of the upper and lower sash channel). When paint dries in these areas it sticks like glue. But don't worry, it's an easy home repair!

Safety Alert!

When working on glass windows always wear safety goggles and gloves to protect your eyes and hands in case of shattering.
