The older wooden Cradco windows made in the 1990’s are subject to dry rotting. I have repaired many of mine. From this process I learned to carefully remove the rubberized boot around the window glass by using a paint stripper to uncover the boot on both glass sides. By removing two screws diagonal to each other at both ends of the window frame you can easily separate the frame allowing you to remove the glass and the rubberized boot. If your unable to make the wood frame repairs yourself, I recommend that go to a reliable wood cabinet shop. The Caradco wood widow frame parts are easy to duplicate and once the shop has its tooling set up they can duplicate as many parts as you need. Be sure to take good care of your rubberized boot so that it may be reinstalled around your old or new window glass. The boots are no longer available on the market.
