window sealant

Time to need to re-seal the outside of my Boler windows (sides), especially the ones that leaks a little, and need to know what product is best to use. Memory serves that silicone is a no-no, but I can't recall what people do recommend. Like to do this little project while the weather holds. If there's a post that covers the hearty discussion, that would be helpful too. Much appreciated, Jamie

Jamie, the best way to fix them is to remove the window and put new rubber around the glass, clean the frame & fiberglass up and re-install using butyl tape. Sounds like a harder job than it really is.

If you google this site you will find lots of info on the topic.
Here is one link to the topic.
