Weatherstripping in New Orleans

Postby Bill Robinson » January 19th, 2012, 7:47 pm

Not sure where to put this so here it is.


I have been doing some weatherstripping here in NOLA for the last few months.

It involves removing the sashes and routing/installing Q-lon on the sides and Silicon bulb at the top, bottom and meeting rail of the upper and lower sash.

This presumes the sashes and frame are in good working order.

Hi Bill, thanks for stopping by.

What is Q-lon? I've never used it.

Yeah John, thanks to the work you and the others are doing here.

I have been otherwise engaged however recently I have been pulled back into the window world:)

Am working on a tutorial to 'splain it.
In the mean time I do have a short video clip which might clarify.
Will post it once it is ready for prime time.
Q-Lon is the nylon weatherstrip used in many new doors to effect an air seal.
The one I use is smaller to work in the window environment.
