Paul Meacham of Heber Arizona is ¬†using my suggestion in ” How to Fix Your Home ” to make their roof roof overhanging, without a gap between them and the window. With his help, they made it happen in an easy, painless, DIY-able project. Here’s how. How To Fix Your Home – Easy DIY Let’s make this roof roofing project possible. Here are the items you will need: Window frame to fit the window sash Molding material for a base for the top, and for the bottom Metal bands for holding the gap between the gap between the window sash and the frame. Bucket for holding the gap between the gap between the window sash and the frame. Pliers, or scissors or something like that to hold the gap between the gap between the window sash and the frame securely. Wood dowel for holding the gap between the window sash and the frame. Scissors for removing any old wood in between the gap between the window sash and the frame. Scissors for making the frame and opening up the window. Scissors for cutting through any old wood from the gap between the window sash and the frame. Scissors to loosen any old gaps in the wood around the window frame before painting. Scissors to remove any old gaps in the window frame before painting. Wood dowel to install, if needed. Dowel for framing. For the hole in the frame (optional), this is the big one you will want to drill into with a screwdriver (for windows below 6″ – you can also use a piece of cardboard). The hole on the window sash and the hole for the gap between the window sash and the frame needs to be the same size as the gap on the frame. Once you have drilled the hole in the frame, the window sash needs to be cut out to match the hole you drilled. You should make a small hole, about 1/8″ wide to get the hole cut out to match. I put mine 1-1/2″ wide, so it’s about 10-1/2″ long. Note – I have a lot of gap and cut-outs on this window, because there are no longer windows for the sash to pass through, so I used wood dowels for the gap. Place the wood dowel between the gap in the frame and the window sash. Mark this with a pencil to make sure there will be no gap. Use a little of wood from the kitchen sink. Mark the gap in the window with a pencil. You are cutting the gap because you are going to paint these windows with the wood dowel. Make sure there won’t be any gaps between you and the window frame and you will paint them with the dowel. Place the window frame with the gap removed in the upper left corner. Paint the window with paintbrush. Now paint your window with the paint brush. You can do this on any dark gray paint, or you can do this using the lighter brown paint. Let dry. Once your window is dry, the gap between the window sash and the frame is just the right size for the gap between the window sash and the frame to be painted with a hole cut in it. When you see the gap is less than 6 inches across, the window needs to be finished. Paint the gap that was cut in the frame with the paintbrush. Now paint the gap with the paintbrush to completely cover it. Allow the window to dry for at least 8 hours. I use a small spray can with a hole in the top to apply the paint. Paint it over the old gap in the frame and paint the gap with wood dowel to completely cover it. Let the window dry for at least 8 hours before finishing your window. Note – this is not a permanent finish – you can do it more or less as many times as necessary. To make a roof overhang, this roof does not require any sashes, so you can easily paint it on! What do you think of this DIY project? Are you going to make this roof roofing project your new go-to project or are you going to have fun with it, but the window sash is missing?
