Best Answer

A direct glazing window is just the transfer of the widely used direct glazing technology of windshields in cars into the window manufacturing process. The glass becomes an integral part of the window thus increasing the stability and stiffness of the whole window. It was first realized by the adhesive company Sika AG. It enables better frame stability, better burglar resistance, smaller frames and better thermal insulation properties. In addition the glazing of the window can be automated.

Is there a way to replace only the glass in an aluminum window?

Yes, it is a relatively easy task to replace the glass in aluminum windows. You basically do it the same way you would when replacing a wood window. First remove the glazing strips. Remove the glass and the glazing tips. Glazing tips are on the inside of the frame and look like trim. You may need a screwdriver of chisel to remove the glazing trim or tips. Then apply glazing compound on the frame. Press your window in to place. Replace the glazing tips. Use a caulking gun to apply glazing compound which will hold the window into place.

How do i replace the inside window in a double glazed window?

Basically you can't - you have to replace the whole double-glazing unit. Double glazing has an inert gas injected between the panes during manufacture - which aids the sound insulation properties of the unit. Once one pain is cracked - that gas escapes and is replaced by air - which is not a good sound insulator.

How much does it cost to replace a 3' x 5' window with a wooden frame if only the glass is broken?

For a house window, you can check with a local glass company. Sometimes, your home insurance will cover replacement; however for such a small window the cost should not be high. I replaced a window once. Clear out the broken glass and putty. Take measurements of the window (3 for width at top, bottom and mid; 3 for height at left, right and middle) and go to a hardware or glass company and they will cut the piece for you. Buy the putty or plastic strips you need and then replace it. For a large window, it may be well worth paying the window company. For a stove window, you would probably contact the manufacturer of your stove. The type of glass and its replacement are probably specialized tasks. If the window has single pane glass you can remove the glazing putty and glazing points (metal) measure opening left, middle and right for height and top, middle and bottom for width. You can than take the measurements to a glass company and sometimes a hardware store and have a new piece cut. You will then need to purchase some glazing putty and have a putty knife to apply the glazing putty, you should be able to reuse the glazing points (they hold the glass in place). If you have double pane glass the chances are you will have to replace the whole window sash. There is the chance, depending on the age and manufacturer of the window, a glass company may be able to order a replacement double pane glass unit. You should first check with the window manufacturer. If you can't determine the window manufacturer have the glass company look at the window.
