How to Replace Broken Window Pane Glass
If you need to replace broken window pane glass, it is important to act quickly and safely. If you have double pane windows, you may only need to replace one pane of window glass, which makes the repair less costly than you may think.
Follow these important steps when you find a broken window in your home.
Simple Steps to Window Repair
Depending on the damage to your window, you may be able to fix a single window pane and save money by not replacing the whole window.
If you decide to replace the window pane glass yourself, follow these basic steps:
- While wearing safety gloves and long sleeves, carefully remove the broken glass.
- Remove all glazing from the old opening and have custom replacement pane glass measured and cut by a glass professional.
- Hold the new piece of glass in place by using glazier's points.
- Apply caulk or glazing compound to the edges of the glass, where it contacts the frame. Use a putty knife to smooth the glazing compound.
It is important to follow all safety precautions when replacing your own window pane glass. It is often more convenient and more affordable to call a glass replacement professional. At Glass Doctor®, we specialize in repairing and replacing broken window glass.
