Stile Bottom Rot

Stile Rot

This is what might happen if you caulk the bottom of your storm windows to the sill. (The weep holes are there for a reason.)  Rather than replace this part, our strategy would be to strengthen the wood with wood hardener or 2-part consolidant, and then fill the checks with epoxy.  (This is a great place to use QuikWood.)
