Hello everyone. I recently installed some Pella aluminum clad casement windows and they seem to stick when opening. I think they may be sticking to the rubber weather strip that goes around the window but not sure. If they are closed for a few days, they can get pretty stubborn. I did spray/wipe some silicone spray around the seal and that helped quite a bit but not sure how long it will last. Anyone have this experience and any ideas on how to fix it ?

Maybe ive done this accidently before not masking off the rubber seal when in finishing new windows and have put sealer on them and then the clear top coat,so even after it dryed when it is shut and the sun heats up that seal the seal and heat reactivate the material and will cause it to stick shut.
Look closely at the seals and see if it has anything on it?
