I have a problem with a vinyl horizontal slider window set in a
basement wall. Neither sash will slide more than an inch or two.
There is a definite hump in the lower frame rail that binds the
sashes. I have access to the indoor face of the window due to a
If I dig out the excess foam under the window, is the frame likely to
straighten out? The window is about 10 years old - will the vinyl
have taken a permanent "set" by now?
I'd rather not replace the window as I don't plan on being in this
house much longer. Could just leave it for the next guy I suppose,
but then it would just be one more thing for the inspector to write up
at sale time.
Suggestions and/or sympathy appreciated.
