Believe it or not, but this is quite a common question. Single pane is only one piece of glass. It is commonly installed in wood window Frames, aluminum window frames and some fiberglass windows. Repair and replacement are in essence the same when it comes to fixing a broken pane of glass. Depending on the window frame type, the installation time may vary. Commonly you will see glazing putty or various trim that hold the glass in place.
Window glazing is the act of installing single pane glass with the assistance of glazing putty and a frame that supports the glass. A person performing the duty of replacing/repair the glass pane is labeled as a “Glazier”.
