I have a window restoration project coming up where the existing windows will need to be glazed in place. I am used to using the Sarco Type M which is a shop glazing. Does anyone have any feedback on the best type of glazing to use outdoors. Also, the project will be taking place in May-June in Maryland (i.e. potential for hot humid weather). The Client does not want the sashes taken off site whatsoever.

Thanks!

If you've been using Sarco Type M for shop-glazed work, are familiar with it and are pleased with it's perfomance and workability, I would recommend using Sarco Dual Glaze for "in-place" glazing jobs. The two compounds are both traditional linseed oil based putties, each with its formulation slightly tweaked to suit the intended use.

Here is a simple formula for calculating the amount of putty required for a given glazing job. The pdf can be printed out and kept on hand for easy reference:
