Removing and covering over window

Post by BorkyForky » Sat May 23, 2020 7:50 pm

I have a 1984 Redman. The small bathroom has a window at the top of the wall that is approximately 8" tall by 48" wide. I want to totally remove the window because of leaking issues. What is the best way to cover it over on the outside. Any help is appreciated.

I assume the home is metal (alum) siding. Most patterns are still available at mobile home parts dealers. Take the window out, frame it in, then cover with new siding.

That said, why don't you just remove the window, scrap the old putty off, re-putty with new, re-attach. Then add an window awning. You're still going to want natural light & a way to vent the room.
