plastic on window screen in lieu of storm
I have old wood windows which I am not replacing and have just had painted. My problem is that in one window the aluminum frame is so bent that I cannot remove the screen (somehow the painter did it, but again it will not move). For the past few years I could not take the screen out to put the storm window in. This winter I would like to protect the inner window's new paint job from the effects of snow coming through the screen. Would it be a good idea to put a sheet of plastic over the screening from the inside? Would this create any problems that I am not aware of? Is there any other suggestion. Thank you for reading and any advice you can give me.
