I bought a building and on floor there is 11 windows, all single
pane,they are all painted shut!!!!!
How can i get them unstuck..I have dug at them
with a utility knife and no way can not get them to move
thanks in advance
at the paint store you can buy a tool called a "window zipper". It is used
to saw out the paint between the parting bead, etc., of wooden windows.
Don't know how well it works on aluminium or vinyl tracks.
Use a 1" putty knife. Holding the blade against the window so it flexes flat
against the window "face", tap the edge of the blade with a hammer so that
it slices through the paint and into the gap between the window and the
frame. Once it reaches into the gap, turn the blade so that you can continue
tapping it along the whole window side. It should extend only about 1/4"
into the gap so that it doesn't cut into the wood. They greatest potential
for damage is while getting the blade into the gap the first time.
