I assume the screw is frozen??? If yes, spray it with some PB blaster or similar penetrating oil and let it soak a few days, then try again. It should free up. If you are going to repair.replace a 19 yr old threshold, I would consider a new door. Much more energy efficient, and probably more secure.
Hi Jess, pictures would help:http://forum.doityourself.com/electr...your-post.html Dividing the window display area from the rest of the space would allow you to de-humidify and heat the window area. Don't over humidify the rest of the space, measure the relative humidity. The fan idea will help, but single pane windows will get cold and the cold will pull that moisture right out of the air. Plastic film is available, but if it gets soaked it can become a worse problem. Divide and conquer. Bud
I do some museum hvac and your conditions are identical. You are expecting a commercial building to maintain conditions it was not designed for. The technical explanation of the solution is that you need to have the surface of the glass below the dew point temperature of the air. Dew point is the temperature at which moisture in the air will condense. This means, as what has already been said, that you need to have warm glass which is accomplished in modern buildings with dual pane glass units. Here, triple pane is now the standard. One possibility which has been suggested is to separate the window from the rest of the shop but if you do have single pane glass you would need this space to be sealed well and you would use a lot of heat to warm it enough to prevent condensation. Likewise, a fan would have to move a tremendous amount of air against the window which could tax your heating system. You could check more carefully to see if they are possibly dual pane which would be obvious if you looked at the edge of the window glass to look for a spacer. Another issue is that you are only aware of moisture on the windows because it is blatantly obvious. Another concern is the likely hood that the the entire building will be forming condensation within the attic and wall space. For smaller residential windows there is a shrink plastic available that gets securely taped to the window frame and will shrink and be nearly invisible when you heat it with a hair dryer and it shrinks and tightens up. To my knowledge they don't make this large enough for commercial windows and would be difficult to install. The bottom line is that your space does not meet the requirements of the business you are in. There really is no simple solution.
