replacing snap-in glazing

A home owner from California says:
Re the "how to" video, why is the glass also replaced?
For alenco dual pane, will the lip of the glazing create the air pocket?

You don't necessarily have to change the glass when you replace the glazing, we just included that step in the video for those who might need to know how to do it. The lip of the Alenco glazing might have a small air pocket, but to be honest that's just how they designed their window.

One last note about replacing the glazing without replacing the glass: make sure to take your time. Sometimes, when removing the old glazing bead, you could damage or crack the glass pane. Just be patient and careful and you should be okay!
