replacing sash cords in windows with sash chains
Hi all. We have many, many windows with broken sash cords. Up till now, we've been propping the windows open with sticks, but I feel like the time has come to be civilized and address the issue.
Our neighbors replaced their cotton sash cords with chains. Do any of you have experience with this? Will chains work with our existing pulleys and weights? Do the windows open and close as smoothly with chains? It seems like chains would last a lot longer than cords...is there any downside?
