Old Steel Windows- couple of questions
I have a house from the 1910's or so. The original house which is now the living room has steel windows, the largest one is a casement(?) has the opening in the middle where you push it out and attach a rod to hold it open. The others are all fixed. They are steel and have disappearing caulk or whatever holds them in. No window people have ever seen them in my area and there is no way to get them to be energy efficient I suppose. Is it hard to at least re caulk and do we have to take all the old stuff off or do you just patch. Any ideas who to call or how to follow up on this. I know this sounds a bit vague. I'm a single mid 50's ex new yorker who is only gradually learning how to care for this wonderful house.
