I was doing some cleaning around the house the other day and noticed that the 2 front windows of my home do not lock . They are ground level so this is a big problem, in my opinion.
A couple of things:
1) the house was a spec house that we bought 2 1/2 years ago.
2) some of the work seems to be kind of shoddy--actually reported them already to the Better Business Bureau for water problems.
3) when we did the walk through a long time ago, we actually did not check each window to make sure that it locked (our fault).
4) when I slide the lock over the window, I can still open the window very easily--or without any tension.
My question is--is there a homemade way to lock the windows with a screw or nail? I have also have seen some water marks inside the window (around the window frame) maybe from water blowing in from the outside?
