Re: Re: Insulating old windows
The windows are in lovely condition. A local handyman stripped down the french windows to the steel and repainted them, at vast cost in time and health (he used high solvent paint that nearly killed me and took ages about it); they weren’t closing well then but now are. And a local locksmith took out the lock, brought it home and lovingly took it to pieces, oiled and renovated it, so it even has the original lock. Before that, they were kind of bulging and hard to close – but Crittall advised me that this was just successive layers of paint since the 1930s, and so it proved.
