comment How do I fill in the grooves in wood paneling in order to paint over it?
Update - We ended up using Spackle and then painting over it. Due to flexing, the Spackle has started to crack. It's still better than it was, but not perfect.

@Steven - Yes, already tried that. It worked the same as the outdoor one.

I thought this might be the case, but since they detect just a few milliamp difference I figured it was unlikely. Any suggestions on how to fix such a small leak?

I didn't realize wood putty came in large enough quantities to do this. Guess it makes more sense, eh?

Thanks for the tip, @shirlock-homes. I was wondering about the adhesive step. I got myself into trouble with adhesive recently and I'm weary of making things too difficult to tear apart when I mess it up.

The walls are a weird height (slightly less than 8 feet) and the has several windows, so a roll sounds like the way to go. Thanks!

comment How much of a window should be replaced?
If you can't take apart the frame and replace just the glass unit, you can probably replace a single sash.
