Miriam & Richard, later this summer I am going to redo one panel of the insulation but almost all the seam tape replacement what is the best product and any tricks to it. Additionally, I notice you're from Lethbridge...actually I bought it down there last Wednesday...I am in Calgary.
Seam tape replacement: I bought some bathtub edging - the kind that folds in half to go around corners and has a backing of butyl tape. It worked great for the back sems below the window, but sagged on the front overhead replacements. I will be fortifying the butyl with contact cement in a week or so and will tell you how it looks. A lot of people use the T-tape with silicone or contact cement. I found the T too deep and didn't want to go through the hassle of cutting it up so I opted for the tub surround gooey stuff. It's quite a bit softer, available in an almond color in most hardware stores that have old stock, comes in two widths, is pretty cheap, and goes around corners well. Now if I can just keep it from falling down....
: We had the back side ones replaced. We kept the frames and had "the guy" take out the glass panels. We replaced them with smoked glass - one sheet per window. We figured we didn't need the ventilation because we have a big window in front and back (cross-draft). The old windows
let in a heck of a lot of dust while we were on the road. This is better.
Thanks! *blush* I LOVE the front kitchen!
