Metal Frame Windows

Replacing a glass pane is basically the same as for a wooden window with some minor modifications. Te pane is held in place with either glazing putty or gasket holds.

The glass pane in steel casement windows is held in pace with glazing putty and spring clips rather than glazing points. Save these clips when removing the broken glass so you can reinstall them later. The glass in storm windows is held in place with a vinyl strip called a spline that is basically the seal. Remove the spline using a screwdriver, remove any broken glass and replace the pane. Next, push the spline back into the frame with a screwdriver. For metal windows held together with screws at each corner, remove the screws and slide out the broken panel. Next, slide the new panel and re-drive the corner screws.
