Why did the house go to therapy?
It had too many issues with its windows!
If only our homes broken windows could be fixed by therapy. Sadly that’s not an option but there are some steps you can take to help fix up that broken window.
Materials and tools you may need:
Safety gear (gloves, safety glasses)
Glazing compound or window putty
Painter’s tape (optional)
Safety first: Put on safety gloves and glasses to protect yourself from glass shards.
Remove broken glass: Carefully remove any remaining pieces of broken glass from the window frame. Be cautious to avoid cuts.
Measure the opening: Measure the dimensions of the opening to determine the size of the replacement glass you need.
Purchase replacement glass: Buy a piece of replacement glass that matches the dimensions you measured. You can usually get this at a hardware store or have it cut to size.
Prepare the frame: Clean and prep the window frame by removing any old putty or debris. Ensure the frame is smooth and ready for the new glass.
Install the new glass: Place the new glass into the frame. Press it firmly against the glazing compound or putty.
Secure the glass: Use glazing points to secure the glass in place. These small metal points can be pressed into the frame to hold the glass.
Apply glazing compound or putty: Using a putty knife, apply a thin layer of glazing compound or window putty around the edges of the glass. Smooth it out for a neat finish.
Optional: Paint the frame: If needed, paint the window frame to match the rest of the window or the surrounding area. Use painter’s tape to protect the glass while painting.
Let it dry: Allow the glazing compound or putty to dry completely according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
