Sliding Window / July 10, 2018 / Marc Girard
Window grills vary greatly in price depending on the size of the window and the style of the grill but probably the average is $150$200 per window. Most insurance policies require either a keylocking window lock or security grill. This is sometimes in the fine print. If you dont have one of these forms of security you may be giving your insurance company an easy way to deny your claim and you will be wasting the money you pay on your insurance premium.
Next you need to install the head rail. Just like the lower track the pivot brackets must be a few inches from the wall. Sometimes you may need more than one track to cover a room.

Otherwise it will not fit correctly.

Now raise the window and attach the foam strip all along the line properly. If required just attach the extensions on the side wall by using the wood screws.

This step will ensure proper sealing and would prevent any cold air from escaping.
