There is a great window repair company near where I live. I know this because I've had more than my share of broken windows in the bad year. Just bad luck on my end. However, as great as my window repair company is, they aren't always immediately available when I need them. So, I've had to learn a few things about how to temporarily secure a broken window while we wait for repairs.
If you really need to, you can temporarily secure a crack or a hole in your window until it's more convenient to fix the window, or you can secure a shattered window so that the weather stays out of your house while you wait. I decided to share my broken window experiences in this blog so that others can learn what to do when their windows break or shatter.
