WINDOW SILL REPAIR IN CONYERS GEORGIA ROCKDALE COUNTY

When windows aren’t properly flashed and caulked there is a way for water to enter into the wood and cause rot. Today I repaired 3 windows that had the tongue and groove system. Two of the windows just needed the nose sill replaced and the other needed the sill and the nose sill. You have to remove the inside trim pieces in order to saw the sill into half. I use a saws all with a wood blade. Once you remove the inside sill trim pieces you can cut the old sill in half but be careful and don’t cut into the siding or sheet rock.

Removing the old sill is easy to do with a pry bar and hammer. Be mindful of the other working components while removing just the sill. When the sill has be removed make sure the area is free of debris and nails for a smooth install. Use a finish nail gun to attach the new sill and sill nose. You can use liquid nail as an extra precaution. Be sure to caulk and paint the sill after install. Caulk everything!sill
