Reglazing window


I need to re-glaze my windows. The sashes are in a metal track though. Can I leave the sash in the window and re-glaze. I don't think I need to completely re-glaze just scrape out the bad stuff and basically touch it up.

No way to tell from here, no one here's going to be able to tell you what type window you have without at least a picture. Are these single paned windows?
Metal frames and single paned windows are the about the least efficient windows you can have. May want to look into new windows there costing you a lot of money.

I wouldn't "touch it up".
Remove all the old glazing and replace. Otherwise the old glaze will take the new glaze with it when it falls out.

I'll take a picture tonight. The windows are wood the track the window sash is in has like a copper flashing and springs instead of counter weights. I do have storm windows on the outside as well. Here is a pic of the outside that I already had.

Here is a couple pictures. So like I said it is a wood window but the track the sash is in has a copper looking flashing protecting the wood.

In order to pull that sash you will have to remove the interior stop and pull everything out.

I would not recommend that because it is a bunch more work to get to a relatively simply problem and the copper jamb liners are not very forgiving when they get yanked on to be put back.

Reglaze from the exterior and use something like silicone once you have removed all the old putty.

I would use a hacking knife to knock out the old linseed putty. Then oil the area with new boiled linseed oil. The Artist Grade or Allback stuff. Hardware store stuff is so full of contaminants that it rots. Then reglaze with a good glazing putty. Allback or Sarco Dual Glaze.
Wait till it skins and then paint.

The windows are kind of hard to open. Anyone have recommendations on lubrication for the copper sash liners?

Silicone spray.
There still not going to be all that easy to open because there wooden windows that expand everytime the humidy is up but should help some.
Also someone painted right were the sides of the window frames meet the window and stop molding are. It needed to be left unpainted.
