    Does white caulking meet IRC guidelines? Or do you have to use specific glazing putty?

  • mknmike says:

    Where is this guy? Can I hire him to do my windows?

  • manson4prezz2012 says:

    Great video, how long do you have to wait to put the window back up? I’m using the same glaze you guys did and it says it can take between 7 and 14 days to fully dry.

    Nice work Bob! For eilohn; steel windows are held in with sash clips, which look like little bent wire. They should have a couple holes drilled into the steel sash to place them in(kind of a spring loaded deal) With steel it is very important that the glass sits in a bed of glazing or caulking and doesn’t sit directly on the metal, as this will lead to broken glass. (great instructional Video)

    any idea on the exact drying time for the “# 33” glaze when temps are varying between 65-95 degrees?

    i’m a professional stained glass hobbyist. i’ve done many a window repairs and usually end up “rolling the putty like a hot dog” and always end up with mess. Thanks for the awesome tips!!! I’m ready to do my next window….if I can find a nice putty knife. 🙂

    @jordanlt001

    think about when you have to replace the glass…then you’ll wished you used putty.

    I am reglazing a few windows and they don’t have glazing points in them. I got some glazing points but i am not sure how the insert them and how far apart to place them. Any advice?

    Bobby, I want to thank you for sharing some of your “tricks of the trade.” I have a have a 48 yr old home that needs ALL the windows glazed. I knew there had to be an easier way! Take Care! Chuck

    Excellent video tutorial! Thanks

  • atanguay says:

    Great video. I’ve been doing this for the last month on my house and it’s good to see I’m on the right track. The warming up trick is something new.

    He didn’t really answer the question as to how long you should wait before cleaning up and painting the glaze. Any ideas?

    Also, at most hardware stores there’s a nice specialty tool to help you do this. He makes it look easy, but it is NOT. It takes a bunch of practice to get the feel of it.

    Better to paint it if you dont want the putty to dry out.

  • TheUnbeen says:

    Thank you sooooo very much for making this video. I’m about to attempt to fix 8 windows that got hit by a hail storm and NOW I feel EXTREMELY confident after watching your video. Thanks again.

  • BretNorman says:

    Thanks for the video and leaving the comment on about CR Larwence. I ordered one of these knifes and they are wonderful tools!

  • bruno2260 says:

    Thanks! I’m glad you brought in Bobby to show how the pros do it. Otherwise I’d be gouging the wood trying to get all the putty out. Thanks again you saved me a lot of time and grief.

  • glazerguy58 says:

    I’d paint it with oil-based dude …. no paint leads to the crap your removing!

  • ClayJohnston316 says:

    Like the guy in the video I have done this profession since the early 90’s, he seems to be really good at it too, the only thing I would change is the way he put the putty in the window. If you have a lot of windows to do, I find its easier to just press the putty into the frame with my thumb. And to me he hold the knife funny, but it seems to work work well for him.

  • ClayJohnston316 says:

    I also read in the comments, someone asked about the steel sash windows, there is actually a clip that mounts into the side of the metal and hooks to the glass to hold it in, but they are getting hard to find. Go to a glass company and ask for them, if they have them they would sell them to you cheap.
    Another thing on the steel windows, Dap 33 will work, but if you really want to do it right, you need to find Dap 1012. Its made for steel windows, but its getting hard to find too.
