I have discovered that I have an opening window which has been sealed shut by using silicone sealant applied from a sealant gun. The window is a standard outward opening window.
I would like advice as to how to make it possible to open the window as the closed window is currently a fire hazard.
I don't know if I could cut a line into the silicone which would leave the silicone in place but enable the window to be opened. I may have to try to remove the silicone altogether. Perhaps I will need to have the window replaced.
