This story shows you how to replace glass in a metal storm window.
Metal storm and screen windows are frequent troublemakers, partly because they are often of poor quality and may have been hastily installed. You can sometimes -- but not always -- purchase replacement parts; manufacturers are often regional and may be out of business. For a tighter seal consider installing better-quality storms.
1 or 2 hours to make most repairs
Hammer, tape measure, putty knife, spline roller
General carpentry skills
Remove and inspect storm sashes. Contact manufacturers for parts as needed.
Screening and glass as needed, exterior wood glue or polyurethane glue, dowels, finish nails
Order a new pane the same size and thickness as the old. Unless the rubber gasket is in great shape, buy new gasket material as well. Slip the gasket onto the edges of the pane. At the corners, make a cut in the gasket so it wraps the glass without stretching or bulging.
