Transom window repair options (with pictures)

15793 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Just Bill
I have a broken transom window. I am wondering what is the best repair option I have? It's double paned and the inside pane didn't break. I'm not sure if this window was sealed (hermetically?) or not or had argon gas for insulation prior? Is it enough to pop out the trim, cut out the glazing and just replace the glass? Or would a complete new transom window unit be required for a proper fix? If replacing the unit, how would I remove it? Thanks for any insights!

There are probably stops inside that are either nailed in or screwed in. You can probably remove those carefully, and order a new double pane from a glass shop. What is the condition of the entire door unit? Probably makes sense to consider total replacement if the rest of the door is showing significant wear.
