replace broken glass of vinyl window

#1 Post by amacbabe »

I have a large dual-pane picture window, approx. 44" x 44" in size. I am trying to remove the glass and bring it to a glass store to have them replace the broken glass. not sure how to get the glass out- see the photos. Do I try to remove from the inside or the outside and how> The window brand is old Thermal Gard

Don't mind when he scratches the glazing bead at the 1:44 mark... :roll: :roll: :roll:

But this is a decent set of instructions.

If it has a bottom stop, then this video DOES apply to your application. Every window is "glazed" into either a sash frame (operable window) or frame (fixed window).

Who is the manufacturer of the window?

I'd start with them. They may have a set of instructions and can likely provide you with the properly sized replacement glass.

Email and set yourself a reminder to call back. Things are crazy these days with staffing and material shortages. I am sure they are putting out fires on the daily.
