Painting Window frames


I own a property maintenance company and have painted but am not a pro. I am starting a project with about 40 window frames at some condos. Just looking for some specifics on how to go about this. Window frames are pealing on the corners and in some spots. I think I will scrape those, than sand the rest of the frame to get a rough surface to prime over, or should i spend time getting down to wood on the paint that is still looking good? The windows swing open, any tips on painting them without having them stick together in the end?

Beings that the OP owns a property maintenance business and re-painting 40 window frames in a condo complex. One can only surmise that this would come under the heading of a commercial/professional question, not a DIY type of Q&A. Glad you posted a answer for the OP chrisn, very informative............
