New to basement. My pervious house did not have basement.
Problem closing/opening basement windows. Are there any tricks to handle them? The pictures are attached. I temporary put the screw that is holding the window in close position. Is there any way I can pull them out, clean all dirt? May be because there is lot of dirt between frame and screen.
How often you basement windows need to be open for ventilation. I never opened them before today I did and now I can not close. I have hygrometer and humidity level is below 50 when is not raining and above 50 when it rains
Also, can any one tell me what is little metallic strip on windows. Some of them even connected to wires and some are not. I do not know what it is?
