I climbed out onto the roof this afternoon and to cleanup and replace the broken window pane. My brother came over to help. One of us was going to keep the glazing as warm as possible while the other used it to seal up the window pane. Turns out 10 F is to cold to attempt these types of repairs. It’s a lot colder on the roof then you
We improvised. We used the wedges to secure the pane in place and left it alone. I will finish in the spring an or if we get a break in the weather. It’s not to big of a deal cause the pane is securely attached. Besides we are going to try to put furniture in front of the windows to keep Emmett away from them. Got it all replaced for about $35 cause I still had some supplies from the last window Gavin broke.

Well, it is reassuring to know that someone else get's frustrated with window glaze being too cold to work in the winter. I have replaced so many window panes in this old house because breaking windows has been one of my autistic child's favorite tantrum tactics. I have definitely set the pane with just the wedges and left it at that. I got so sick of it that, I decided the glass needed a shock absorber and started putting in silicone caulk instead of window glaze. Perhaps it gives it some "bounce" I don't know and I don't care. I told my husband that other women wash their windows in spring. I am doing well to just replace the broken windows half the time!
I hear ya on that. We replace all broken windows will plexy glass. It has lots of give and won't break. It sounds and feels different to him now so he hasn't shown much interest in that window lately. Thanks for sharing.
