Finally got it done yesterday, took the window mechanic no more then 15 minutes, the window
opens and closes without a problem. No more propping up the window with a stick
and having it fall during the winter, no more drafts either. I should have done this a long time ago.
Replaced balances top and bottom sash, $120.00 with a 1 yr warranty. If I had to buy 2 new windows
it would have easily cost me around $400.00. Repair or replace, you have to really compare the costs.
