Replacing Window Glass | Repair | How To

Replacing broken window glass can be a difficult task. If you have a broken window and are thinking about replacing it yourself, there are many things to consider before getting started. In fact, it may even end up costing more in the long run than simply calling a professional.

Replacing Broken Window Glass: DIY vs. Calling an Expert

First, you should consider the pros and cons of replacing broken window glass yourself. Then you can decide whether you want to take on the challenge or leave it to the experts. 

The DIY Method

Curb Appeal

Replacing broken window glass yourself involves numerous steps and each step should be done carefully and precisely. Here are the steps to replacing window glass yourself:

  1. Remove the broken glass
  2. Remove any putty
  3. Oil the frames
  4. Apply new layer of putty
  5. Install the new glass
  6. Use glazier points
  7. Prepare the putty
  8. Place your putty
  9. Add any finishing touches

While this can be done on your own, you must have the proper knowledge and skill to complete the job correctly.

Without the proper knowledge, you run the risk of getting hurt or installing the window glass wrong, which will only cost you more money.
