I have a question about some windows I ran across today. They are older wooden framed, double hung windows but there is a sort of wooden storm window on the outside. The customer does not live in the house or in this state (its a rental), and its currently unoccupied so I wasn’t able to go in and fiddle around with it to see how they work.
Are these older double hung windows removable to get to the inside of the storm window and the back side of the double hung windows?
It appears there’s some sort of spring mechanism on the inside of the bottom storm part, so maybe the storm portion pops out, then you have to lower the top window, wash it from the outside, wash the inside of the upper storm from the inside, raise the top half of the double hung back up, wash the outside of the lower half of the double, and then replace the bottom storm. If so that’s a lot of fiddling around and I want to make sure I charge accordingly. If the double hungs just pop out, well then I’ll place them on a towel, whip through front and back and put them back in.
I hope that wasn’t too confusing! Here’s a somewhat crappy pic that sort of shows the setup.
