Removing Old Blind Glass Window
When removing blind glass window, you want to be very careful, so wear work gloves. The first step is to soften the area around the window, making it easier for the blind glass to come out. With traditional glazing, soften the old putty with a heat gun or torch. Be careful not to scorch the wood. Get your putty knife and scrape away the soft putty. Once the putty is softened and removed, you should be able to remove the blind glass window and the metal glazing points. Sand the corners of the opening to ensure an easy installation.
Installing New Blind Glass in Windows
The first step to preparing to install the new blind glass window is to apply a thin layer of glazing compound in the primed corners of the opening. Take the blind glass opening, and press it up against the glazing compound lightly to bed it. Press in new glazing points and put them in about every 10 inches apart from one another using the tip of a putty knife. Apply glazing compound around the new blind glass window and smooth the glazing out with a wet fingertip or a wet cloth.
