when it's windy the front double glazing windows on my house creak like
mad...it's quite old glazing (I would say early '80's) and the frames
are a bit
loose, as in when you push on the frame from inside the house
the frame actually
moves a tiny bit......before I go insane from lack of
sleep, can anyone tell me
if this creaking is caused by the loose frames
or does it sound like it could be
the glass units, and if so is there
any way that it can be remedied....someone
did suggest to me to try and
seal the frames (to the wall) with expanding
foam......is this wise??
Maybe you mean "double-hung" windows with typical slop in the tracks.
Mor-Tite works great for sealing, and stopping rattle, short of
hurricane. (It's a strip sealant, like putty, that you can press into
place and remove later.)
