I want to remove the small removable wood on French windows. The old putty runs, what to do to remove or hide this problem?
Remove the opening of the window, lay it flat on trestle. Remove the closed pares, and clean all affected parts. Pass a blade of cutter between the glazing and the wooden part to be able to remove the window (equip you with gloves). Clean the glass and the wooded area where the leaky joints are found. Reinstall the glass by affixing a preferably transparent silicone seal, reassemble the closed walls and seal the part left empty by the old seal to block and seal the glass.
