Sash Window Repair

Postby roscoe2008 » Sun Oct 07, 2007 10:34 pm

Hi all,

1st time post and my DIY experience is limited, however having just bought my 1st home I'm hoping this will change.

My home has single glazed sash windows that are in need of some TLC. My budget has been used elsewhere and I won't be able to replace them until next year. I know what I want to do but thought I'd ask for tips on each step:

1) My 1st plan is to clean the outside of the windows and paint them. Are there any steps inbetween cleaning and painting that would improve finish or proctection of the wood.

2) I also need to repair some of the sash bars (not sure of terminology??) on window and need to know the best steps to do this, from the type of adhesive to use and also what to treat them with.

Thanks in advance for any replies.
