hi all. I'm trying to decide what to do with the windows around the salon
on my cat.... at the moment, she has laminated safety
glass all round, which has worked for the last 30 odd yrs just fine, so long as you keep up with the caulking. What I was thinking of doing was changing out to 3/8" cast acrylic
, mounted over the existing cutouts and held in place with 3M's vhb tape and dow 795 as caulk.
my question isn't the ol' polycarb vs acrylic
argument, nor the debate over to screw or not to screw, if I do this I'll be stickin to the plan, unless of course someone has a REALLY convincing alternative...
my question is this, should I even be doing it at all???!!!
I kinda want to hear from someone who has maybe done this and can offer up their experience. I like the glass, and can't remember now why I thought it would be a good idea, other than the caulk leaking and having to redo it.
but its time to either do this or not, I have the materials, and they're taking up space and adding weight.
does anyone think that the cast acrylic would be better out in the open as a front window, they're pretty big at 50"x45", so the flexion concerned me a little... another idea is leave them as they are, recaulk and hold on to the front acrylic windows to use as storm windows, the bonus there being I could still see through them....
any advice/opinions are appreciated!
