I think we've got this squared away.

Man I know that can be true half the time around here.
If it's a vinyl window and I can get glass from original manufacturer, that helps keep the cost down.
Otherwise, no mercy from local glass shops.

I've done it a number of ways. Local shop comes out & measures. They may order, or build at shop. Depends if can match tempered, Low E, other special warranty specs.

Sliders - generally easiest to just get the entire fixed panel and not fck with setting glazing.

Breakage is common in new builds, and you will not get a Final Build green tag nor C of O with broken glazing.

Right. This window wasn't like one where you cut two panes of glass and fit them in to the stationary section. There wasn't any trim to remove to get at where the new glass would fit in. Many glass shops would have done what is happening now. Get the window info off the spare slider, contact Simonton Windows and have them produce a completed section. Then... whoever... will install that section. That's what's in the works now.

Case or topic closed.

$500 at least to replace. He has a $1000 deductible.

The owner should attend the next HOA meeting and propose permission to attach a clear acrylic piece over that entire window.

Re: Golf Ball Broke Stationary Side Of Sliding Bay Window


I use to install a lot of Simonton windows and there may be a sticker at the top of the inside vinyl channel (move the sliding portion out of the way) with an order number. Call the rep and he can order a replacement insert with that number.

From the outside, remove the four pieces of trim-a couple of putty knives works well. I use a putty knife to break the adhesive bond between the glass and vinyl frame. Reinstalling, I've siliconed them in IIRC. I don't recall if he double sided tape comes w/ the replacement. It's not rocket science.

That window looks like a slider, not a bay window.

Ya...slider not bay window, I corrected that brain freeze earlier on.

Yes, there was a sticker on the spare slider, the installer coming over has that Simonton info. Simonton actually made a factory run for that one section. Takes two weeks. I'm gonna check out how he replaces that stationary section, for sure. For DIY sakes. Not rocket science, but I'd still order the finished section, for all best reasons.

If this same window is always getting nailed by golf balls, you could upgrade to laminated glass at the next replacement. Won't be cheap, but is an option.

I just want to know what happened to the golf ball. Did it receive first aid, at least?

The lone golfer on foot didn't bother to come over and get his ball. He walked up to the green like nothing had happened, glanced over my way a few times.
