I am restoring 39 windows in my 1936 colonial. Way too cost prohibitive to hire out. I've been at it for 2 years; my only experience, I am a lawyer by trade, is with my own windows. I have found DAP 33 "easy" to use and there is a uniform consistency from can to can. Simply work it in your hand, apply and cut it with whatever knife you can work with. I keep a little linseed oil on hand and occasionally lightly coat my knife if I find it dragging. It took a couple windows to improve my technique, but I can do a 6 over 6 in an hour or so. I tried Sher Wms glazing (I use their paint), but too sticky and much harder to work with. Bottom line, if you have some experience, this product works as advertised.

6 month dry time

I've been glazing windows for 6 years now and I'm tired of hanging sashes taking them out later to paint. it's like the job is never done.

Comments about Dap® Glazing Compound:

At first when I was trying to figure how to use this product I got easily frustrated and didn't want to do the job anymore. Although I kept on going and was able finish 10 windows in 3 days. I found it easier to use the putty with latex gloves on because the putty doesn't stick to your hands and it helps you smooth it out. At first I was using a wide putty knife but that didn't work good because it was hard to work in the corners and places like that so I bought the tiniest one they had probably 5cm wide and went to work and it turned out great by the end in my opinion for a first time user. I found when I left the putty in the sun it made it stickier and easier to smooth out. Dry time on the container says 7 to 14 days so you have to be patient with this product. After 3 days of sun about 20 - 28 degrees celius its has a harder top layer but is still soft.Overall I liked this product.

      Not Impressed

      By Jim

      from Wyoming, Mi

      About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

      Pros

      • Applies easily, not extremely messy

      Cons

      • Drying time is atrocious.
      • I'll be dead before it cures
      • Michigan weather is not ideal for external use

      Best Uses

      • Indoor where sun can cure it.

      Comments about Dap® Glazing Compound:

      All the above comments compiled together give it a two star rating. Create a product that dries quicker. This product is not efficient and does not allow a job to get done in an acceptable amount of time.

            Comments about Dap® Glazing Compound:

            Window glazing with DAP 33 takes some finesse, but if you practice your technique, you should have very nice results. My only "complaint" is that I don't like the long wait time before I can paint.

            Comments about Dap® Glazing Compound:

            Had a difficult time applying it, possibly it was "old stock" the consistency was like flour and water and did not adhere well to the glass or oil base primer. I installed to 10 X 32' panes in a door with it. Comes back off very easy regardless of the pressure I used to apply it and it is very soft. I am in my 70's and have done this many times but possibly I missed something. It did get the job done but took three times as long as normal. I hope it sets up a little so I can paint it before the cold weather comes.
