Step Three Third: Cut New Glass
Before removing old glass, it is recommended to have measured the glass. Apply those measurements to an entirely new sheet of cleaned glass, and then cut it.

Step Four: Installing New Glass
A soft bed of putty that the glass will rest, should be first applied. It is important to ensure that the glass has a good seal well into the putty before it is dried. To stop air or water from entering into the glass use more putty. Scrape away excess glazing, then you’re done.
