Painting exterior sashes


How do you paint them without having the joints crack when the sash is opened?

don't apply to heavy a coat of paint and leave the window open until it is dry. The joints should not be filled with paint. Wait until paint is dry but not cured and move the window to break any seal you may have made.

it takes up to 30 days for acrylic paints to fully cure. you have to move the windows up and down every day (twice a day is better) for at least a week.

and like the other guy said, try not to fill the track with paint.

Painting exterior sashes


the type of window I am talking about is not the one that goes up and down but opens out.
On the front of the frame it always cracks where the joins are .
any ideas?

Okay cheers.
I rarely do wooden windows, most of the time they are aluminium.

In order to stand up to the steady abuse from being used and the weather, window painting will require attention to many details and a bit of patience. The details are preparation and repair, choosing a good paint and proper application techniques.
