To fix a broken window, you will need to obtain the following materials:
Once you have gathered all of the necessary materials, you will be ready to begin repairing your broken window.
Remove the broken glass from the window using the glass cutter
If you have a broken window, the first thing you need to do is remove the broken glass. You can do this with a glass cutter.
First, make sure that the area around the broken glass is clean and clear. Then, take your glass cutter and score around the perimeter of the broken glass. Be sure to not score too deeply, as you don’t want to damage the window frame.
Once you’ve scored around the entire perimeter of the broken glass, gently tap on the center of the glass with your fingers or a small tool. The goal is to break the glass along the scored line. If done correctly, the broken glass will fall out in one piece.
If there are any small pieces of glass remaining in the window frame, use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment to remove them. Be very careful not to damage the window frame while doing this.
Score the glazing points around the circumference of the window with the putty knife
1. To score the glazing points around the circumference of the window, you’ll need a putty knife.
2. Start by scoring the glazing points on one side of the window.
3. Then, move to the other side of the window and score the glazing points there.
4. Finally, use the putty knife to score the glazing points around the entire circumference of the window.
Place the new piece of glass into the window opening and press it into place
It’s easy to fix a broken window if you have the right tools and supplies. First, gather the following items: a new piece of glass, putty knife, putty, cloth rags, and wire brush.
Next, remove the old glass from the window opening with the putty knife. Be careful not to damage the surrounding wood. Then, clean out any old putty or debris from the opening with the wire brush.
Now it’s time to apply new putty around the edges of the opening. You want to create a seal so that no air or water can get in. Use your fingers to smooth out the putty until it’s flush with the wood.
Finally, place the new piece of glass into the window opening and press it into place. The goal is to get a tight seal so that the window is weatherproof. Wipe away any excess putty or debris with a rag before it dries.
Use the wire brush to smooth out any rough edges on the new piece of glass
Use the wire brush to smooth out any rough edges on the new piece of glass. Be sure to do this in a well-ventilated area, as the fumes from the glass can be harmful.
