external georgian bars were never a good idea. There are some seriously strong glues on the market now . I think I would try this route .Do a sample experiment first with a plastic strip on some old glass.

hi guys, i came across this forum while i was checkin my site for s.e.o's.
i bought into a company that repairs your units and got ripped off.
the process works, around 90% of the time, you cant get rid of any stains but can get rid of the water.
drilling small holes in the unit, 1in bottom corner and 1 in opposite top corner, the air circulation created dries the unit out. providing the unit isn't sitting in water/lots of water is somehow able to access the unit. if you play it safe by deglazing the units and wet seal them in(silicone around outer gaskets where glass will go back to). you effectively make them water tight.i've started a business doing it loacally and where 1msquared unit would cost around £80-90 to replace, i can repair for half the cost. i give 10yr guarantees on the basis if it fails or i cannot sort the problem, i replace the unit for the difference. so effectivly you never lose out.i am spamming i am just trying to explain in a good enough way what can be done.
just to be clear to people that arent sure about window repairs of all aspects. everything is possible to be repaired. locks, handles, hinges, rubber gasgets, gearing even if you have actual cracks in your pvc frame, i havent looked into that yet but it can be done apparently.
im not going to name the company that took me for a ride, and if you want to know my company name then please ask.i just want you to know im spamming.
hope this helps guys

I have been replacing broken down double glazed units for about 7 years now I also manufacture the glass and in my expert oponion the only way is to replace the complete double glazed unit. Who would want holes drilled into there glass anyway and the cost is probably more expensive as I would supply and fit a double glazed unit 750mm wide by 250mm high for about £45 with a 5 year guarantee
