Our team of fitters at Cheltenham Glass and Glazing are highly skilled in installing and repairing putty glazing, with many properties in the Cheltenham area comprising putty-glazed windows.
Putty has long been used as a glazing sealant in domestic construction both during repairs and installation of windows and is a highly effective product. Glazing putty not only holds the glass in place, but also fills any gaps between the glass and frame and seals out the great British weather.
However, when putty has been in place for a long time it hardens and crack will start to appear. When this happens pieces of putty can fall out as it can no longer flex and respond to changes in temperature.
As a result the elements will begin to get through the gaps in the putty meaning rain and wind will eventually become a problem inside the property.

We would advise that putty glazing is only ever carried out by a professional glazier who has been fully trained and has experience of working with this sensitive material.
Working with glass and glazing putty is a highly skilled operation that requires extensive handling training, often involving heat guns, sharp putty knives and scrapers. Where old putty is being removed there is a chance that it will contain lead, which requires careful handling.
It is wise to avoid DIY repairs on windows where glazing putty is involved. Be safe and leave this job to the experts.
If your property has old glazing putty that needs to be replaced or if you require new windows to be installed in the traditional way contact Cheltenham Glass and Glazing for a no-obligation quote.
