Replacement of a window sash by simply unscrewing hinges or releasing it from a jamb liner does not constitute “window replacement” for purposes of the RRP Rule.  Therefore, such tasks may fit within the definition of minor repair and maintenance i.e., activities that disturb six square feet or less of interior painted surface, or twenty square feet or less of exterior painted surface.   

If unscrewing a hinge or releasing a jamb liner disturbs paint on the screws and/or hinges, but does not otherwise disturb a painted surface on the window sash, frame, casing, sill, trim or surrounding walls, then the activity likely disturbs less than six square feet of painted surface and would not be subject to the RRP Rule
