Double pain replacements are my first choice, but with so many other
fix-up jobs to do this summer, it would kill the budget to replace all
of them. So we'll replace the 3 on the rainy/windy side of the house
and leave the rest for next time.
The only thing wrong with them is that they leak all the way around --
around the edges, where the windows meet each other when closed or open.
They are 50 year old aluminum frames, single pane, with no vinyl
finish, but otherwise look like this...
The seals between the glass and the frame are OK. It's the
aluminum-to-aluminum contact points that leak.
And while I'm asking... if I can seal them properly, the next thing
would be any tips on painting them white or some other type finish so
they match the new ones as closely as practical?
I guess I forgot the question... LOL!! Any tips on where to get
sealing materials for these old windows?
