Wood Window Glass Replacement

Lets repair a wood window

 Measuring wood sash windows for  glass is pretty easy, you simply measure the wood indentation where the  glass lays, the best way to do this is to beat out the old puddy with a  pair of gloves a long sleeve shirt a small flat tip screw driver not too  sharp and a small hammer, and then you measure, but of course you can  measure with the old broken glass still in the frame you just have to  spend alot of time doing a close inspection. 

The puddy is at a slant

 The puddy is at a forty  five degree slant, so you measure from the top of that slant, where the  puddy meets the wood to the opposite side, standard wood sash glass  measurements are: 26 x 15, 26 x 21, 26 x 24, 32 x 15, 32 x 21, 32 x 24,  even numbers are usually the standard sizes,

Goof ball sizes

 But of course there are the goof ball sizes which vary, sizes like 33 3/4 x 37 3/8 or 34  x  24 ,  houses built during the war had weared sizes and houses built  during the depression had no regulations at all.

Dealing with big glass

 

if your dealing with something that's to large for you to handle than by all means you need to call a professional. 

Glass  is dangerous and big glass is even more dangerous so don't try to do  something that you cant handle, (36"x 60" is probably the biggest most  people can handle without needing a truck) .
