Fixing A Broken Window In Your Charlotte Home : DIY Tips

December 16th, 2021

In our time at Ultimate Offer Property Buyers buying and selling real estate in Charlotte, we’ve had to fix A LOT of broken windows.

The good news is that savvy DIYers can probably figure out how to fix the broken glass on their own.

Here are some steps to help get the process started (this is assuming that only the glass needs to be replaced) ...

Remove the Sash

This will make it a lot easier to replace the window glass since it can be laid flat while it’s being worked on.

Remove Broken Glass

Put on some heavy-duty gloves and start removing the glass. Be careful and make sure to get all of the glass. If a piece gets stuck, you can use a heat gun to slightly warm up the material. This will make it easier to remove.

Measure

Before putting in the new glass, make sure to measure the height and width of the windowpane as well as the thickness of the old glass. Write these measurements down and take them to a home improvement store to get the right glass.

Insert Glass

Clean the window frame, carefully apply new glazing, set the window glass, and paint the window frame once you’re done.

Hope that helps! If it seems like too much, don’t hesitate to hire a professional!

What Our Customers Are Saying

Finding a place you can call home can be a very lengthy and tiring process. For me, this was an important milestone in my life and I needed someone who not only understood my goal but also has the knowledge, experience and patience to help me reach this goal. Bright was very involved in the entire process; scheduling property visits, working with the financial institution, lawyer’s office, property inspectors, all the way to negotiating the property price down, etc. Having Bright on my side as a buyer made the process smooth and enjoyable for me, and I’d strongly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
