Life of Mylar Storm Windows


I received this note on the life of inside Mylar storm windows:


I read about your double Mylar storm windows.  I built Mylar storm windows for our house 25 years ago and am still using them. A couple I had to replace the Mylar because our dog punched holes with her claws.  I used 5/4 by 4 clear fir ripped in half, which gave me 1 by 1.75 wood. I built the frames about smaller than the window and used foam weatherstrip all around, and doublestick tape to attach the Mylar.  I think I used 3 or 4 mil.



Thanks very much to Warren for providing this.
