Repairing a picture window & glass questions.


Hi,

I chiseled out some wood under glass in a picture window 2 weeks ago. I just left enough wood under each corner of the inside trim to support glass from falling.

So I got a tube of flex-tec hv, gorilla glue, pl 375 construction adhesive. Which of these should I use to press and screw the new wood in? I got a piece of pressure treated wood.

Problem is the glass is hanging lower than the wood sill and there is a space between the left bottom window and the left side trim where I would slide the new wood in. I'm bad at describing this. It seems like the carpenter that did all this a few years ago may have ordered the wrong size glass and just, well I don't know what he did. The first link has the best pics of this.

If you have any advice, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

It looks like you will need 2 pieces of wood. One to go under the glass and hold it in place and then another piece to cover the bottom edge. I'd slide the base part in and screw it into the wood under the glass. If you can use a pocket screw system, it should hold it tight. Maybe a couple of screws down into the brick to keep the wood from lifting. Under this I would put a generous bead of silicone caulk.
The second top piece should be beveled so the slope is away from the window. A bead of caulk against the window and one at the front edge. Screw it to the bottom piece and fill the holes.

Hi Ron,

I looked up "pock screw systems" and found a Kreg Mini that should angle in nicely. This is so cool! I always learn about some new tool or product from you. Thanks so much for helping me again.
