Question
I have a two piece picture window (a fixed inner and a removable outer )the outer window is held to the frame by stormdoor style clanps. My problem is that after I remove the clamps , I still can"t remove the outer window. Any ideas? I'm not terrible handy but it seemed like a simple task at first. I want to wash the both windows.
thanks
Bill

Answer
Hi Bill- Where in Connecticut are you from? I grew up there....So did you try and gently pry the outer panel after removing the clips? Using a putty knife or similar? It sounds like it is just stuck. Over time the change in moisture will act to soften materials and when dried act as a glue, of sorts. Try this and let me know if it works. If it doesn't can you send me a pic?
