Steel Casement Windows

Posted by Randy Bultmann on July 23rd, 1997 09:24 AM

I am currently in the process of window maintenance. I am scraping and reglazing now. So of course I have several questions.

1. Some of the old glazing seems to be in good shape. But it is not smooth. Is there anything I can do without having to remove all the glazing and reglaze?

2. I am using an oil base primer/sealer. What is the best paint to use?

3. What is the best caulk to use for wood/brick joints?
And should I caulk before or after I paint?

4. Are there any adjustments to allow a tig hter closure for the casement window? Also, what would be the best weathstripping to use? I thought I had seen a product that slipped over the edge of the frame. I am not a fan of foam. I am estimating that they are 45+ years old.

At this point in time all information would be greatfully received.
