There's an old cinderblock outbuilding on the property I'm under contract for, probably built in the 1960s. It had many doors and Windows, but most of them were covered when the previous owner of the property "renovated" the outbuildings by replacing their roofs and throwing siding up over the exterior.
What tools and processes should I use to turn these into functioning doors and windows again?
- Can I just cut a hole through the metal and wood bits, or do I need to take down the siding entirely and start anew?
- If I am to cut a hole, what tools and processes would I need to cut the hole?
- If I am to cut a hole, do I need to finish the edges of the cut hole with some kind of sills or trim?
- If I am to cut a hole, how can I make sure water doesn't come in through the doors and windows?
