How should I go about repairing a pane of broken glass in an old french door?


Answer by  dr84bhl (2789)

Clean out the old glass. Get a pane of glass cut to the size you need. Get some putty and fill the edges in the door all around the section that the pane will fit in. Put the glass in position leave to dry. Beading can be fitted to finish off and tidy.

WEARING gloves & safety-glasses: Carefully-remove the surrounding-glazing & the old-broken-glass-pane. Measure the opening (horizontal, vertical, & both-diagonal) dimensions; mark & score the new-glass-pane a little (1/8"-1/4") smaller than the opening; carefully break the new-glass-pane on the scoring. Use glazing-points & glazing-putty to center & secure the new-glass-pane in the opening.

Well, you need to get a new pair of glass. You can get some glass cut at any hardware store.

First, find the exact match for the glass. If it old and original, find that same glass or the repaired door will look awful. Carefully pry off the pieces of wood that hold the glass in, drop the "new" glass in, and replace the holding strips of wood.
