Are you planning replacement glass for vinyl windows?
This is an excellent solution if the window frame is still usable, but the glass itself is cracked or broken.
Read our article to know how to fix the glass or replace it with a new one if necessary.
How to Fix Glass in a Vinyl Replacement Window?
If the glass is not broken but only slightly cracked, you can try to repair it by closing the crack with a special glue. This is some kind of putty or special tape that prevents new cracks or even destruction of the window. Nevertheless, you should understand that these are all temporary solutions. If the glass is badly cracked, draughts, moisture, and dust will burst into your home. They will increase your heating or air conditioning bills, and also make your life less comfortable. That is why we recommend repairing the glass only to gain time for searching and calling a contractor for a full replacement glass for vinyl windows.
