 Re: Construction: is air, metal, or foam better

Author: Mikee (---.tnt2.oberlin.oh.da.uu.net)

OK,

Metal reinforcement in the horizontal sashes is a must. If not, you will have sagging in the sashes in a few years and the windows won't lock anymore. Also, foam is better than just air. It adds a better R-value to the window itself. It's more important to make sure you don't have a metal spacer.
