Take glass out of vinyl window to make chicken coop window


Hello. I have some free vinyl windows (double pane) that I was thinking of taking apart to get the glass so I can make lighter, wooden sashes with grids for a chicken coop. Is this easy enough to do or is it not worth the hassle? Thanks.

I think I would try and use them with the vinyl frame or look for some older wooden windows that are being removed for new vinyl install.

Thanks. I was trying to remember what the panes looked like without sash. Doesn't seem like it is worth dissecting. Thanks.

You can do it.
However, if you don't have experience -
you'll bust the glass.
I speak from experience.
Not worth it.

For old wood windows you might want to check a local Restore
