I have a Jalousie window in a steel frame.

The exterior wall is Block w/stucco.

And the wall has Aluminum Siding.

There is Capping around the current window.

How can i remove the window without destroying the Capping ?

I don't see how to remove the Capping because it goes under the J Channel around the window opening & i cant remove the nails, which are under the siding.

Also it has some kind of Caulking that is so hard i can't even cut with a utility knife. ( never saw caulking this hard )

Is there any way i can remove the window thru the interior side ?

I herd there is a 1/2" lip around the exterior side of the window which will stop me from pulling the window into interior side.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Remove all of the glass.

Make a few cuts with a saw as deep into the side frames as possible without touching you inside or outside trim. Use a hammer and wonder barto pull the frame towards the center of your opening. We have doen this in the past and on average it takes about 30-45 minutes per window if you are very careful.

Note, if you are not comfortable with power tools this is very dangerous, you might want to hire someone with insurance.
