30yr old Wooden Sliding Window Stuck closed
Hey everyone. It is like 18C outside and I want my window open so I go to open it and it is stuck. Not like a little stuck where it moves in the tracks, but all my might (im a pretty big guy) cannot open this window. I have sort of hit the corners with my fist, i've tried to push the window up and move it, and it wont budge.
Most of what I found online seems to not be for wooden windows. Most refer to wheels or something coming loose. Around here, every window is wood.
I dont think there is any metal in this window. It is original to the house and the house is like 30 years old. I dont think wd40 would help because it is all wood. If it would help, then I can try it, but something about oil and wood doesnt seem right...
and I have heard of using some wood to hammer the window but usually that applies to when a window is stuck open. This is stuck shut... I am not really sure how to "unstuck" it without damaging it. Just by eyeballing the frame, it looks level. Meaning, it is not tilted or anything.
Anyone have a suggestion?
