thermal windows cloudy
I hope this is the right location for this. I have several metal vertical sliding windows in my home that the seals are damaged and the gas charge has been lost causing clouding between the pieces of glass. I removed one section the other day and it appears that by removing some screws the frame will loosen enough to replace the glass yourself. I've had two glass companies give me prices and the average is about $100-$130 apiece. I have a total of about 12 or so that need replacing. Is this something a homeowner should tackle?????.

I'm sure there is more to this than I see. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thank you

You have already analyzed the windows and determined they can be taken apart, and researched the glass issue, why stop there. This is a DIY website, so DIY. Why pay someone else to do what you have done. The key for the glass MEASURE VERY CAREFULLY.
