Comments on: Replacing a Pane of Glass on an Aluminum Window Frame http://yourhoustonhomeinspector.com/for-the-homeowner/home-maintenance-for-the-homeowner/replacing-glass-window/ Wed, 21 Aug 2013 10:45:36 -0500 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.6 By: frankschulteladbeck http://yourhoustonhomeinspector.com/for-the-homeowner/home-maintenance-for-the-homeowner/replacing-glass-window/#comment-9274 Wed, 01 May 2013 14:33:11 +0000 http://yourhoustonhomeinspector.com/?p=1434#comment-9274 There are products which create the double pane over aluminum windows. These products use magnets. A magnet strip is glued onto the original frame with the other frame being added having a complimentary strip. This does make the new panes removable. From what you describe, the person was trying to develop a solution to creating a double pane window in a creative fashion. Instead of the foam rubber bumper that you describe, I would use a vinyl strip. The vinyl would not transfer the heat that well, and this could be glued. If I want to ensure that the pieces are removable, my glue would be a silicone for windows. For a more permanent glue, I would suggest a hot glue gun, since this will allow you to control the glue and its placement.

Don’t ask me why they did this..but I imagine they were trying to make their own “insulated” window. Both pieces came loose and I am re-seating the same glass pieces into place. Not even sure how they are supposed to be separated and the outer pane secured. One pane had a black foam rubber bumper about .25″ wide stuck all around the interior edge of the pane. Looked to be self-adhesive. The other did not. I just really don’t want to take this crank window frame apart to replace these panes….any ideas? Thanks.

I have this exact project to do, and your description is easy to understand & follow. Very clear on all the things I needed to know in this project & hope it goes as well as your explanation. My only concern is getting the pane size correct! Thanks again!

You can find it near where they sell individual panes of glass or other glazing. Hardware stores also sell the material, but you have to ask which section. Typically where they have some lumber pieces. Good luck finding it.

But where do you buy the new vinyl strips to glaze the new glass

Most of these how to articles were written for my son who has been helping his aunts, so I am usually showing him what to do.
