Removing and Replacing the Seal

When removing the seal from the edges of the frame, peel off any stray fragments. Dispose of these remains properly. Before replacing the seal, make sure the area is clean by wiping it down with a damp towel. Clean off any dirt or debris.

Sealing the Edges with Caulk

With a caulking gun, fill it up with a unit of silicone. You will seal up the frame along its edges. Do this for every frame of the double pane window. Wait a day for the silicone to dry. Waiting for it to dry will prevent any damage from occurring.
