I've decided to get someone in to replace the existing aluminium bay
windows. I thought I'd just give the render a lick of pain to freshen it up
before the new windows go in. When I started to sand the wood which is
located on the bottom of the bell (please see picture -
) the wood just fell apart because it
is so rotten. Is this a structural part of the bay window or is it a drip
bead which can be taken out independently of the window and everything?
Your help will be greatly appreciated.
