I am wondering about procedure changes for glazing in winter.
How is it different from glazing in the summer?
Would it work to do the glazing indoors @ 60-65 degrees and letting the compound skin over indoors? I've read on one of these posts that the skin-over time can be very slow.
And if this glazing indoors, and painting indoors will work, how do you know when the windows can be installed again - especially in sub-freezing temps... or is it just better to wait for spring? (if that is an option)
Thanks,
Bob

Glazing indoors works OK. You can use a glazing compound like Sarco Type M, which is formulated especially for glazing indoors and has driers that help promote skinover.
Once the paint has dried the sash can be re-installed in the frames.
