    Default windows sealed shut w/spray foam

    Looking at an old house to buy. The previous owners have sealed all the old original windows shut with expanding foam sealant. Any advice on how to remove this without excessive damage?

    I would suggest a Japanese saw with a thin blade and 0 tooth set to try on cut through the foam with as little damage as possible to the sashes. Once you can open them remove them and scrap and sand the foam off.
