How To Replace Broken Window Glass?
Do you have a Double Pane broken window?
Here are the steps you need to take to replace a window glass:
Repairing a shattered window glass pane is not as easy as you think especially if the cracked glass is large pane or even double pane.
The first step is to make sure you is to have your safety glass gear on such as safety gloves , arm sleeves, and some eye protection on before you even come close to a broken glass pane.
The second step is to use a duct tape and seal the broken pane with a cross-hatch . This step of course comes of course after removing the window sash or glass door. Please do not stand on a ladder while preforming this type of task. Again, you’re probably better off calling a pro to be on a safe side.
Step three is to remove the glass pane off the frame safely without damaging the sash. When replacing a window pane, make sure to order the same kind of glass originally installed in the window so it will match the glass in the rest of house. Dispose of glass fragments in the trash (not recycled)
Step four is to clean the window sash and make sure is absolutely clear of any glass pieces , old caulk or double sided tape.
The final Step is to insert the new glass unit into the window sash and make sure it fits the frame. If your double glazed glass pane has grids, double check to see they are aligned with the rest of glass window units and everything is matching .
Prior to placing the new window glass pane into to the sash . apply either some double sided tape or white caulk to secure the glass into the frame. Lastly Clean the glass and install the sash back to the window frame.
