storm windows

I recently installed a new triple-track storm Window. My problem is that the screen fit's too tightly to move up and down freely. The glass storms slide up and down with no problems. Is there any way to dismantle one side of the screen and trim it down just a bit? Or must I buy another screen separately that is about 1/16 less in width?

You might have bowed the window in a bit when you installed it. There should have been some temporary clips that keep the window aligned until it is installed. Try removing one screw at a time and and screw it back at a 45
angle to the outside edge if the window. What you are trying to do is spread the window out a bit.
