Re: Helms25 Window Gaskets

How did the repair go? I have some butyl tape, and one window removed. I'm trying to determine if I need to remove the window from the frame. Did you end up keeping the original frame or going with something new? I'm going to try to remove the plexiglass from the frame and clean it up tomorrow. The prvious owner just put clear caulk on it from time to time, which looks bad an d only slowed the leak. It looks like the frame is two half frames riveted together, which should be fairly easy to drill out.

Mine were leaking pretty badly, there seemed to not even be silicone in one area of the window, so I'm looking forward to getting it done right.

Any advice? Did you remove the plexiglass from the frame or just the frame from the window.
