Glass in storm windows is replaced in the same way as glass in permanent windows (page 60). WEATHERSTRIPPING WINDOWS Most windows manufactured now are weatherstripped at the factory. If your windows aren't weatherstripped, you can seal them yourself with weatherstripping. The three types generally available are spring type, pliable gasket, and compressible felt strips. Look for weatherstripping in a building supply store or home improvement center. Spring-type weatherstripping made from bronze, aluminum, or stainless steel is either bent in the shape of a V (cushion-metal strips) or slightly angled (spring-metal strips); made from plastic, it's shaped like a V.
NOTE: To finish water-resistant wallboard, use water-resistant joint compound (follow the package directions). Apply tape and layers of joint compound, following the steps on the facing page (see page 89 for finishing corners). To apply compound, dip the edge of a clean blade into the compound, loading about half the blade. Apply the compound across the joint; then, holding the knife at a 45° angle to the wall, draw the blade along the joint. Using increasingly wider knives for each layer makes the joint smoother.

Glass in these windows is replaced in much the same way as for wood sashes. In other windows, the glass is secured with rubber seals, a rubber gasket, or beveled metal or plastic snap-out moldings.
