Stationary windows around door
I am removing the paint from around the front door of my house. As I get closer and closer to the stationary windows on the sides and top, I'm trying to figure out how to proceed.
1) Were these window panes likely inserted like the sash panes, with metal triangles and thus removable? A couple of them could benefit from having the glazing compound replaced, so removing some of the panes is an option that would allow me to get in there and heat/scrape/sand.
2) For panes I would rather work around, such as the transom window, is there a heat shield of some type that I could put on the glass? I have deflectors for my heat gun, but I was wondering whether aluminum foil or something like that might help.
