I recently purchased an older home, and one of the main windows in the living room has a broken rope in the sash, which makes the window impossible to open. To complicate matters, there is a leaded glass window panel on the top (immovable) portion of the window that I’m really afraid of breaking if I let someone try to pull the casement around the window apart to get at the broken rope in the sash.
Is this a fixable problem? If so, where can I find someone who knows how to do this sort of work (i.e. under what category should I look in the yellow pages)? Can anyone who has gone through this give me any ideas on how much it will cost?
