casement window slightly bowed.
One of my wooden casement windows is very slightly warped in the vertical; it opens fine, but when going to close it, it hits the frame by about 1/8" towards the bottom middle of the window. I have to take off the window screen and press gently on the warped or bowed area to get it to close. Is there some kind of small adjustment I can make to fix this? I'm not sure what to adjust or what to do.
It has been like this since we bought the house in '99. I've just started opening that particular window lately because I discovered it really helps cool the upstairs off via cross ventilation with our afternoon breezes, so I'd like to open it on a regular basis.
the bottom of the window; you can see there's a bit of space between the part that opens and the frame:
the middle of the closed window: you can see there's not a lot of space.
the lower middle of the window. You can see I actually cracked the frame a bit because I didn't realize there was a problem and the part that opens hit the edge of the frame:
any help appreciated, or if there is a better forum for this question, what would that be? Thank you!
