I'm so confused. I never heard of a window that opens inside with another window behind it
that opens outside. What would be the purpose of that? If you wanted fresh air, you'd have
to open the inside window and run outside and open the outside window. Or open the inside
window and reach out to open the outside window.
A double pane window is two sheets of glass. Hence 'double pane'. With a double pane window
there is some space between the glass. It's not glued together (so to speak). When you open
the window raise the window you get air. Simple as that. ALL windows have an outside weep
hole. Generally it is on the metal frame. That way if you wash your window seals, the excess
water can run out through the weep hole. It may generally be on the window screen.
No, I don't live in the house we built. I had too much for me to handle there and sold it when
he passed away two years ago. My house is brick and one area of my house has double pane
windows. There isn't drafts coming in any where in this house.
I still don't know why you would have that large opening on the inside of your window. You

You ever see any of those? I can't recall where or when I saw such but I know I have. Had
some kind of ropes on the side and I think a big opening at the bottom where the ropes could
Yep, I think you have to be very familiar or have had many people you know well, give the
thumbs up to handymen or individual laborers. Not saying all are bad. Just saying if you
don't know and you have a big job like a roof, best go with a licensed company.
