SP started a task thats going to monopolize many weekends this fall, window repair. Our 1950s home has the original windows and the time has come to give these windows a bit of TLC. After starting to work on the first window, Mr. SP quickly discovered that one side of the window sill had started to rot. Repairing a rotten window sill isnt terrible difficult, lets see how to do it! A 3 in 1 Scraper was handy for removing old caulk, chipping paint, and rotting wood. A putty knife was used to mix the wood filler and to spread it in place. A double edged scraper was a great help in removing chipping paint. Mr. SP started the window repair by using the 3 in 1 tool to remove the old caulk. Then he used the double edged scraper to remove peeling paint. The sill had a rotten place and the 3 in 1 tool worked perfectly to remove the rotten wood. At first the rotten spot didnt appear to be too large, but the more he worked, the bigger it got! After the wood was chipped out and the loose paint was removed, the window sill was wiped clean with a damp cloth. Thanks to the Haven Conference, we had a container of Bondo Wood Filler available to use. This 6 oz. container was just enough to repair one window. We have six more windows to go and well use this product for any wood repair that needs to be completed. The great thing about Bondo is that it dries quickly and can be sanded and painted with very little wait time.
