My rancher has several large single pane picture windows oriented vertically along the south and east sides of our house. All have storm windows that do a great job insulating from noise but the whole assembly could use a good spring cleaning. They are all rather old and the interior painted wooden frame around the windows has some blistering and cracking.
The windows on the east side are "normal" in dimensions and topped with standard casement windows for ventilation.
On the south side are a cluster of tall, thin windows that reach all the way to the gabled ceiling. I believe that they are ~2 feet wide and between 8-10 feet tall - the tops are angled to the roof.
I can't seem to find anything anywhere about fixing the framing or getting replacements for these oddly sized windows.
Would sectioning them in two so the top of each is a relatively small angled window and the bottoms are all the same size (say 2X8 ft) be a sound idea?
Would a double pane replacement be worth it, or would sticking with the custom storm windows (and/or replacing their old aluminum frame) be a better idea?
