Despite the fact that plastic windows are considered more modern, some owners of old wooden frames prefer to keep their windows -tested, with a wood frame. In such frames, a person can independently replace the old glass with a new one, while, having retained the family budget, since you will have to pay the glass.
As you know, with damage, cracked or broken glass rarely flies out of the frame. In most cases, it must first, somehow get out of there. At the same time, one should not forget that such glass no longer has its former strength and rigidity, and a large piece of glass hanging in the upper part of the frame can easily slip along the frame as a guillotine. Sometimes, in order not to injure yourself to a greater extent, you need to finish off such glass, and not remove the fragments with your hands.
When working with glass, one should not forget about the protection of the hands (it can be gloves or even better old dense mittens), legs (closed boots with a dense sole) and eyes (protective glasses).
For the convenience of replacing glass, the window sash can be removed and put on a flat surface. The upper fragments are first taken out of the frame and only after that all the lower. No need to pull the fragment with all your strength, it is taken out, swaying slightly and sipping, and then put in a cardboard or plastic box, but, in no case in a package.
After all the fragments are extracted, the fold is cleaned, they remove the old putty, glazing and nails. Glorica for compaction of glass is removed with a chisel and a kiyanka. To do this, the chisel is inserted at an angle in the gap between the glazing and the frame evenly hit it with a kiyanka. The rotten fold is strengthened with liquid resin or mastic. If after replacing the glass an old graduate is used, then the fasteners of the nails are slightly loosened, and then they are carefully removed with the help of pliers or ticks.
After complete cleaning the frame from putting and nails, and removal of all parts of fasteners, begin to install a new glass. A window sealant or new putty is laid out along the perimeter of the cleaned frame using a construction gun, having previously rolled it into the tubes of the same diameter. New glass is applied to the edges and slightly pressed against it. Following this, small nails located at a distance of 25 cm from each other, piles are fixed. With the help of a flat spatula and putty, the heads of cloves hide. The remaining groove is also laid out and tighten its fit with a spatula, creating a bevel of 45 degrees.
