Reglazing old wood storm windows?
Hello! I have an old house that still has the original double hung wood windows, all of which have wood storm windows that hang on the outside (and can only be removed from the outside). The storm windows are very large (about 7' tall by just under 3' wide).
I am in the process of repairing one of the most rotted storm windows and have some questions on how to reglaze them. The storms have four lites, evenly divided, FYI.
I will be using DAP latex window glazing from the tube. I've considered using 33 but don't want to deal with the oil base as I'm working on the window inside (no other choice) and have pets in the house (including birds who are very sensitive to chemicals). I know the latex glazing isn't ideal, but I'm going to try it at least on this window.
Has anyone used the latex glazing before? How did you apply it--- run a bead along the rabbet, place the glass, insert glazing points, run another bead on top?
Did you prime the inside of the rabbet beforehand?
The latex glazing tube says it's not to be used on windows more than 48" in any direction-- these windows are much taller than that. If I'm using glazing points does that restriction matter?
The tube also says to "round" the corners and I don't know what that means. Traditionally (with oil based) the corners are slanted at an angle, aren't they? Would it make that much of a difference to not have them rounded (however I would even do that).
Thanks in advance for any help you can give!
