Interior and Exterior window staining and painting.
In most cases an off white oil base enamel finish is common for the interior painting of of windows that are most often made from yellow pine. We typically find stain and varnished finishes in windows made with hardwoods for the interior side of studies, formal Dining and living rooms but in some cases all the windows in a home may be stained and varnished. Wood windows can be costly to repair and replace so it is important to always use a good penetrating oil primer along with a premium grad exterior enamel paints for exterior window sides and trim work.
Window screens and drip guards.
Before you remove and throw away those dirty old window screens please remember that the screens are there to protect your windows. It is much better to clean and or replace the screens when possible. Keeping your window screens in place will keep your windows protected for many years to come. The majority of the windows that are repaired or replaced by Dallas Woodwork are often missing window screens. the windows with good screen protection are always in better shape when removed for repairs and painting.
in the case of casement window were the screens are on the inside it may be more beneficial to install drip guard flashing, rain diverted or an awning along the top side of the window unit. the picture below show a simple custom drip edge installed over a french style casement window in University Park in Dallas, TX.
