In order to transport the disintegrating window once it had been removed, the homeowners used the old standby -- duct tape.
Repairing the window frame began with an application of epoxy to reconstruct the rotted portion of the horizontal rail. A piece of pine is clamped to the rail as a form.
After the rail is epoxied, the frame is clamped back together and more epoxy applied where needed.
More epoxy is added to consolidate the frame.
Next step: sanding the epoxy smooth
After sanding, the window is primed and any remaining divots are touched up with putty. After a final priming, the window is painted and ready for installation.
