Most house owners think that the restoration of old windows is hard, but that is not the case. With the right tools and knowledge, anybody can get the job done. If your old window is decaying, painted shut, or leaky, why spend a lot of money to place it when you can restore it, and it will just look brand new? Before you begin with the process of restoring your old window by yourself, you need to get familiar with the steps required to get your old windows restored back to its original form.
The first thing you need to do when you want to start repairing your old window is to remove the damage or spoiled sashes. To do that, you need to remove the paint rope that is between the jamb and the inner stop. Once you are done with that, remove the old glazing using a deglazing tool. After that, then you should remove the surface paint with the appropriate tool until only the wooden part remains. Then you need to clean and prime the surface of the sash. In the case of a decayed area, you can apply wood filler made of polyester-resin . Once all these are done, prepare the sash before you put back the old glass. To prep the sash, you need to add some glazing to the inner side of the sash frame. This will give an additional seal for the glass to sit on. After you have added the glazing material, clean the sash.
