Repairing Window Muntins

Q: The muntins on my windows have been mangled by sash locks carelessly left closed. Is there a way to repair the damage?
—Laura Mozier, Fairfield, CT

A: As long as you're planning to paint the window, the best method I've found to repair this sort of damage is with a slow-curing architectural epoxy and a plastic spreader shaped to match the muntin's profile. You can use this same trick to restore the profile on any damaged trimwork around your house.
