      Diane, you need to schedule a 15-Minute call with me. There's simply too much to talk about and type.

    I just had a house built this year, the problem that I'm having is the split in these new windows. The contractor wants to put sashes on the windows that are scratched. Should I except that or have the windows replaced

    I'm in the process of removing my old dbl hung windows and replacing with a quality replacement/insert window. I removed all 4 weights from the jamb and began filling the void with minimally expanding spray foam designed for windows & doors. What a disaster/mess. The window is 54" high so I can't tell if I filled the entire void. I used a spray foam gun too - thinking it had a greater reach. Can I drill holes where the stop was for the upper sash to see what's happening in there or will that compromise the integrity of the frame? Thanks - any help is greatly appreciated!

      Steve, mess is right. There's much to discuss and I have questions for you. I can discuss it on the phone if you want.
