It is that time of the year again for a house window spring repair. Winter is almost over and I am excited about the prospects of summer. After months of cold hard weather and the season has taken its toll on the house you do need to take a few days to fix and repair.
Well today I want to share some few tips on repairing your house windows in time for the summer time.
First you need to make sure that you have the right tools for the house window project. I always tell my readers never to start a job without all the necessary tools in place. So you need to make sure that the following is available:
Glass of Proper Size that you will use to replace the old one with, a glass cutter for sizing the windows, putty knife or alternatively you can use a glazer or scraper, paint, pliers, paintbrush, chisel, razorblade scraper, linseed oil, heat gun or make that a soldering tool, window scraper, glazier’s points and a hand cleaner. You also need to organize some work glover to protect your hands from the broken glass and all the debris.
Once you have all these then you are ready for your house window spring repair. Now let me provide some key tips about the actual repair process;
You may have to remove the windows and replace screens on clean windows if you are dealing with interior storm windows.
You must make sure that weather stripping provides a good seal. Examine that caulk lines carefully around the exterior windows before you begin.
You can use a screw driver to probe the trim that is made of wood. This is found around the windows.
You need to move faster with the house window spring repair process to beat the early rains that many damage your wood if exposed to the rain.
