Dispose - Recycle 6' x 7' pane of plate glass?

Asked by Sharon Gant at 3:16pm on May 1 2017

Frame on picture window rotted. Howie Glass says they won't use the old glass to make new storm window - and they don't want it.

So what to do with this plate of glass? Cousin and I removed the rotted frame and the glass is currently leaning against the side of my house.

I'll appreciate any referral for someone to rebuild a new storm window frame and put it back over the window would be appreciated - OR - someone to come take it away.

I would suggest reaching out to one of the window restoration firms in the city to ask their strategy for disposing of large panes of glass, such as Building Hugger ([email protected]).

Actually I have reached out to them and received a response from them that gives me hope for possible reuse for new storm window.
