window sash painting problem


Hi there.
I painted some wooden sashes and everything is fine but they cracked on the joints.
especially the bottom one where it pivots the most.
Any tips on how to fix or prevent this problem?

window sash painting problem


did you use a flexible caulk on the joins? this lets the paint flex without cracking. use it wherever two pieces of timber meet.
