The following are some relatively simple (temporary) home window cracked glass repairs - Because, hey, sometimes you just don't have the money to call a glass company....
By "cracked glass" I mean a single pane of glass with a single, fully "run-out" crack in it. This type of broken window is fairly stable and can stay as such for years and years.
First, gently clean the Glass window surface to be repaired.
The glass needs to be free from dirt, grease, debris, and dry. Clean lightly soiled glass with a moistened paper towel. Any type of ordinary glass cleaner will do (even the dollar store stuff).
Place a strip of clear tape on the inside of the glass. Make sure it covers the hole or crack completely, and extends a little beyond. The tape will keep rain out and prevent a crack from spreading until you permanently make the repair.
Apply a thin layer of clear nail polish into the hole or crack; let it dry thoroughly. Repeat the process several times, allowing it to dry completely between applications
Fill the small crack or hole in the window with clear 100% silicone sealer to repair it quickly. When cutting the tip of silicone tube make sure to make the hole as small as possible. Allow 72 hours for it to dry, then gently remove any excess with a fresh razor blade and a window cleaning solution..
These are relatively simple repairs that can tide you over until you are prepared to have the window fixed properly by a glass repair company.
