Bay windows are a wonderful aesthetic feature for any home. They flood your rooms with natural light and add an interesting design element that’s noticeable inside and outside of your home. If you discover that your bay window is broken and needs to be replaced, call a glass expert to determine the best solution.
Bay Window Replacement: Can I Do It Myself?
Replacing a bay window is most likely going to require a professional because of its size. You can follow the steps below to replace it on your own, but we recommend calling the experts at Glass Doctor to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
Keep in mind that the following steps should be used only with a window that has a wooden frame. The glass in vinyl-framed bay windows are sealed in place, meaning it will need to be replaced entirely.
Carefully scrape away the putty around the broken pane and remove it from the wood frame.
Remove all of the pane’s shards and fragments from the area.
If the pane is cracked but still intact, remove it from the frame.
Replace the pane with glass that’s been precisely measured to fit the space. Use putty and glaze to reseal it.
