Title: Window jamb component assembly

Abstract: A window jamb component assembly mountable in a jamb of a double hung window for cooperative engagement with the sash assemblies thereof. The component assembly includes a longitudinally elongated jamb liner having upper and lower segments and includes a pair of channel guides spaced apart by a profiled web. The profiled web defines sequentially aligned recesses, namely an inner weather stripping recess, a jamb filler recess and an outer weather stripping recess. A jamb filler, held by the jamb filler recess, provides a uniformly clad surface to match the appearance of the trim of the double hung window by covering one of the weather stripping recesses of each segment. Frame weather stripping for sealingly engaging the sash assemblies of the double hung window is deployed and held in the inner and outer weather stripping recesses not covered by the jamb filler. Such assembly provides a visually pleasing finish, while providing improved cooperation between the window jamb and the sash assemblies.
