Drafty Wood Windows
We recently moved into a 75 year old house with original wood double-hung windows. They are beautiful and in excellent condition and I do not want to replace them, but they are a bit leaky. I was considering thin weather stripping at the bottom of the sash or on the window sill and perhaps some where the 2 rails meet. I think these are the 2 areas leaking the most. Is this the way to go or is there a better solution? Also there is a little play in the vertical channels that the windows slide in, probably from wear. I think this would be harder to address, any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, Rick.
