We have recently had some very strong winds in our area, and I noticed that our front window was just hanging by a thread. The putty is cracked and some missing. Can you tell me how to remove and replace the glass in a very lg. venetian window. Also, what kind of putty/caulking to use that won't crack or run.

Thank you,

For very large windows you should not attempt the removal and replacement as a DIYer. It can be quite dangerous. Use a glass contractor instead.

But for most glass, panes are replaced and reset using glazing compound and window points available from a glass store.
