    Re: Sash locks broken on casement window

    It could be a case of layers of paint preventing the window from opening.

    If that's the case, get your chisels, utility knife and flat screwdrivers...and start cleaning.

    Re: Vinyl plank installation and base boards

    You can insert plastic spacers into the gaps, one every say, 2 feet (and at least 2 per plank). You can even make your own wood chips to fit. They will hold the new floor in place.

    Re: Vinyl plank installation and base boards

    The best way is to remove the existing baseboards, and if they are in excellent shape, just clean them, paint them and set aside. Lay your new floor - keep about 1/4" gaps to walls. Then re-install...
