Single pane Window glass repair in an aluminum frame

Written by John Rocco


Happy new year everybody. I hope this isrepparttar year that you all find whatever it is that you are seeking in life. I really enjoyed seeing my family this holiday season, but two weeks is about all i can handle. I'm definitely glad to be back here inrepparttar 100061 beautiful Pacific Northwest. Let's suppose you still have those old aluminum single pane windows in your house,and one ofrepparttar 100062 neighbor kids throws a ball through it. ( Your kid would never do that!) Depending on where you live inrepparttar 100063 country, you can pay anywhere from $75 to $150 to get it repaired. Well, if you're willing to spend an hour or two, you can getrepparttar 100064 window fixed for around $20 or $30. I'm not going to try and explain how to cut your own glass. I am going to explain how to getrepparttar 100065 old glass out, measure forrepparttar 100066 new glass, and installrepparttar 100067 replacement glass. So, let's use this article to explainrepparttar 100068 most common type of aluminum frame window.

If you have a sliding window, one ofrepparttar 100069 panels will be stationary, andrepparttar 100070 other will slide back and forth. Ifrepparttar 100071 slider isrepparttar 100072 one broken, you simply lift up and swingrepparttar 100073 bottom out. Ifrepparttar 100074 bottom won't come out, check for rollers on top. Sometimesrepparttar 100075 top rollers are adjusted up sorepparttar 100076 slider can't be removed. Just loosenrepparttar 100077 screw holdingrepparttar 100078 roller in place and lift up with some force. That should pushrepparttar 100079 rollers down, allowing you to removerepparttar 100080 panel. Layrepparttar 100081 panel on a table and measurerepparttar 100082 width and height ofrepparttar 100083 glass only. Take this measurement and add 1/2" to bothrepparttar 100084 width and height. This isrepparttar 100085 size ofrepparttar 100086 new glass that you need to order. Measurerepparttar 100087 thickness ofrepparttar 100088 old glass. It will either be 1/8" or a little less than that. The thin glass is called single strength and is actually about 3/32". The 1/8" glass is called double strength glass. Be sure to orderrepparttar 100089 right one. If you order double strength glass because you figure it's stronger thanrepparttar 100090 old single strength piece, you are going to have a devil of a time puttingrepparttar 100091 frame back together. That tiny 1/32" difference can be a real pain inrepparttar 100092 neck. Trust me, you want to replace single strength with single strength.

Now, it's time to takerepparttar 100093 frame apart and remove all ofrepparttar 100094 old glass. Make sure to put on a heavy pair of gloves to avoid getting cut. You will find a screw in each corner of your frame. You want to remove two of these screws in opposite corners. So, if you removerepparttar 100095 bottom left screw, you need to also removerepparttar 100096 top right one. Now, take a rubber mallet, slide one ofrepparttar 100097 corners offrepparttar 100098 table that hasrepparttar 100099 screw removed, and taprepparttar 100100 frame to separate it fromrepparttar 100101 glass. Set that half ofrepparttar 100102 frame aside, then dorepparttar 100103 same thing torepparttar 100104 other half. Now you should have two halves ofrepparttar 100105 frame, a piece of rubber, and lots of glass. Throw away allrepparttar 100106 glass, then clean outrepparttar 100107 rubber, making certain to get every piece of glass out of there.
