    Re: what is the window sill groove?

    Do not cover the sill drip. Even if your contractor caulks the joint to prevent water from coming in. You will then be relying on caulk to keep your home dry. This will be a maintenance nightmare.

    You do not have to take any of the wall out. You might have to remove some of the trim on the jamb. You will also have to find matching rollers for the track.
