I've read many of the threads on glazing putty in thier entirety. So where do I buy some? Here in AlbanyNY i have only been able to find Dap 33 which I detest with a passion. I would love to try something else if I can find out where to buy it. About ten years ago, when I lived in Seattle as an apartment maintenance person, I purchased great putty from a glass supply/repair shop on Broadway in Capitol Hill. He sold it to me in small batches b/c he bought it in bulk. Can't remember the shop name or name of product. Would be nice to have but again, I just need a location for buying anything. Sarco sounds great. I need enough for about 28 window of 13X28" and 112 windows approx. 10"X15". A 5 gal. bucket will be needed but I'm not a contractor/distributor. Thanks for all your help. I'll check back in tomorrow.

so....are you an OLD homeowner or an old home OWNER??

you can purchase the multi glaze type m putty from sarco by calling them at 773-735-5577 or 800-969-7889......

i had no problem purchasing from them...i am a contractor but did not have to submit any information to prove it and was never even asked.....i bought the 5 gallon bucket but next time i will get 4 one gallon can...just easier and there is less drying of the putty from opening the container so many times....

a one gallon container costs $11.75...a five gallon container costs $11.05 per gallon...

good luck!

Thanks for the reply. I am the owner of an old home built in 1927. I will call Sarco soon. Glad to know I can get something else.

Some homeowners trying to buy from Sarco have had difficulty. The key to buying from Sarco is to realize that their typical customer is the professional window specialist, small glass shop, and big window manufacturer. Do not expect the good folks at Sarco to tell you how to fix your windows. Their business is making and selling putty. If you need help fixing your windows or using putty, come back here for advice.

When you call, know exactly what you want (Sarco Multi-Glaze Type M), and be prepared to set up an account with them. When they ask if you have or want an account, do not be surprised or confused, simply say "yes, please send the forms." Give them your fax number, and if you don't have a fax, ask them to send the forms by mail. They may ask for commercial credit references, for which you can give any company with which you routinely receive and pay bills, like your electric power supplier, and telephone company.

Found some Glazol at a Curtis Lumber so will be using that. Stocking up now for the spring project just in case something happens to this product and it becomes unavailable by then.
