I have wood windows and a few were broken this week. Schools out ;\)
Anyway what do I need to do? Can I take them out and have them replaced or does someone need to come here?

Was the wood broken too, or just the glass?

pull the stops that hold the window in place, clear away all the glazing, and install new glass, and then reglaze it. Bucky at Hadley's used to do that. Not sure who might do it, if you can't or don't want to. Try Judy's mirror and glass, or maybe Nugents.

Does Judy still do glass? I called there 2 weeks ago and got an answering machine saying something about framing.

I'll be honest I don't know if she's still doing it now. I think the last time I used her was abotu 2 years ago.

Clearing Glazing:
Depending on the condition of the glazing you may be able to pull it off with your fingers. CARFULL OF BROKEN GLASS. But if not a utility knife(razor blade), or a putty knife will work depending on how well the glazing is still stuck to your wooden window sash. carefull not to remove or shave off too much wood from the window. We only want to remove the glazing. The proscess of removing the old glazing usualy pulls out the old glazers points (AKA stops) too.

But if there is some left,

Pulling points:

You can pry them out with just about anything. I would recommend needlenose plyers to pull them out. But a flat bladed screwdriver works easily to pry them out.

Please see the link from there. I know you can do it hun.

Any trouble just hollar.
