window glazing


I am currently removing old window glazing. My house is 90 years old and the glazing is stubborn. It takes an hour plus to remove the old glazing from each pane. Do I have to remove all the old glazing before application of the new?

Just remove the glaze that doesn't put up a good fight to stay in place. Then prime, re-glaze, and prime again. New Glaze will stick to old glaze with no problems.

I'll be doing this in next year or so....so from what I read, when reglazing windows, the primer and paint afterwards needs to be oil-based? There is oil paint there now, but I'd like to change it to latex.

The bare wood needs to be oil primed for the galzing to stick to and not dry out. After the glazing drys for at least a couple days, it should also be oil primed, when that drys, paint with whatever.( except behr!) It is a long drawn out process, believe me,I have re-done my whole house, but after 85 years or so of paint buildup on the outside, it is amazing what a difference it makes to get rid of that buildup. My wife thinks it is the best thing I have ever done,( to the house, that is) or then again maybe not( only the house) maybe the best thing I have ever done period

LOL...thanks for the info, I'll keep it in mind for the outside projects; that is if I ever get the inside done. After some time at the beach I just can't seem to get back in the diy mode, lol. Anyway, my LR walls are VERY SMOOTH and look great; eventuallly I'll get the gardz and superpaint on the walls, lol. Fortunately I don't use the room much.
