In Response To: Windows painted shut (Emily Hottle)

Funny that you should bring this up. The four windows in my garages were also painted shut. If you plan to replace the windows with vinyl replacement windows, just rip them out and throw them away. I did just that, only I had professional installers do the job for me. However, if you wish to fix them up, then use a sharp STANLEY knife between the window edges and window frames to break up the paint. You might also want to brush the sealed parts with paint remover. Allow the paint remover to react with the paint. This takes about five minutes. Open the windows, then hose down the residue. Good luck.
