    The windows recently installed got wiped out by a car unfortunately, fortunately nobody injured.

    They're being rebuilt same as before in 4x3 rebated softwood and hardwood sill using D4 foaming adhesive between all joints.

    Speed is of the essence this time, will linseed paint still work painting on fresh or is it just the wrong time of year? Also what to use between joints as sealant? Just decorators caulk?
    Any tips on a paint that is faster drying than linseed oil based but has the same characteristics and credentials perhaps? ready for paint from Saturday onwards.

    Do I also need to 'knot' / Zinsser any knots that wont be on display? For example the inner face of the reveals, heads etc?
    Any other recommendations or linseed oil it is again...
    Went with sadolin superdec this time
    Is standard decorators caulk suitable for joints etc and then use the sadolin superdec over it?

    Im not an expert(just diy), but if in doubt indoors acrylic allows a bit of movement and is still paintable, while decorators caulk is cheaper but I have had stiffen and crack.
