Forum Title: Broken sliding window pane - how repair?
Hi, I have a single pane sliding window that has an entire pane busted out - essentially just the vinyl frame remains in the window frame. I'm stumped on how to repair / replace this. This is in an old, not well-kept up house I recently acquired. I have little-to-no make / model / manufacturer information. Here are three photos. One is an overview, then there's one looking at each side of the pane. Thank you!! Timothy

The threshold is more of a weather-keeper-outer more so than insulation. BUT you will be left with a gap that must be addressed. I would get with the inspector and let him know what your plans are so you can get with the contractor and make sure he removes the thresholds before he installs the doors. I would have the sweeps on hand as well. You may talk your contractor to install them for you But it is certainly DIY.

I'm with you. We have some hardware stores that do repairs like that... but I can't figure out how to get it out of the frame? I'm used to the double hung where there are little spring-loaded posts I can retract to pull the sash out of the frame... I can't see anything like that on this dude.

Normally you just lift it up and swing the bottom out. May have to move to middle of track. Also look for any screws or blocks in the top that would prevent it from being lifted.
