window putty on plastic windows


The Dap Glazing putty container says not to use it on plastic windows. Why is that?

How old are your vinyl windows? What are you trying to glaze? Vinyl expands and contracts much different then wood or aluminum frames, that's why they don't want you to use a product designed for such.

window putty on plastic windows


We've had a couple not-too-big windows missing out of the back of our old garage for quite a while. Last week a couple came in to the fabric store where I work to buy vinyl to repair the damage raccoons had done to their boat, so I thought it might be a good idea to put something in there, just a couple of plastic windows, I think. The frames are wood.

Hee! A solution that doesn't involve window putty. Well, I don't know about that! Did you draw that?
