landlord's idea of "secondary glazing" is to seal a second sheet
of glass within a bodged frame he made.
The space between is now full of dead spiders, flies etc. We'd like to
get the glass out, clean, and replace the glass using some draught
excluder instead. But how to get the glass out with cracking it! Can
very old putty be warmed or something?
I'm going to answer all the obvious immediate questions!
The window is high up so we can't push the glass from the other side,
Why won't the landlord do it? The deal is that the place is very
cheap, we do any decorating we want, he only gets involved if a boiler
explodes or a roof caves in or something.
Why don't we just break the glass? It's quite a big bit!
Any help appreciated!
