Repair Your Single-Pane Windows

The following steps are to be taken if you decide to repair a single pane window yourself: 

  • To avoid being cut by broken pieces, masking tape over remaining shards of glass. 
  • Protect surfaces below the broken window with a sheet to avoid damage caused by falling glass. 
  • Tap remaining glass with the butt of a hammer to loosen it. 
  • Remove largest remaining pieces by hand.
  • Use a hacking knife or old chisel to remove the old putty and stubborn pieces of glass from around the glazing rabbet.
  • Dust off surfaces. Use an exterior wood primer on any bare wood before installing a new pane of glass

Even with the proper protective eyewear and gloves, it can still be dangerous to handle and install glass on your own. One mistake, and you can find yourself with shattered glass across the floor, where your young children or pets may seriously harm themselves. 

At Glass Doctor, we want to help avoid these risks and more by professionally installing our custom glass into your existing window frame. There's no upcharge for creating custom glass for your home, and we'll make sure your pane is installed and maintained up to industry standards and safety.
