Removal of large picture window
We have a challenging window removal ahead and I'm looking for advice from anyone who has experience with this sort of thing. We have a sealed glass window unit (no external frame around it - it's just the sealed glass sandwiched between the interior and exterior jambs) that is 96" x 72". I need to remove this in order to replace it with a new window. Estimated weight is approximately 200 lbs. Given the sheer size of the glass pieces, not to mention the weight, I'm uncomfortable about the idea of using suction cups and removing it whole - the consequences of a break while wrestling it out of the hole could be bad. One idea I've toyed with is completely taping the surface of both pieces of glass and then breaking it out - has anyone ever tried this or have any other ideas?
