Most single pane glass is hold in place with glazing putty and some are secured by wood trims. Over time rain and sunshine damage the glazing and wood trims.

Painting wood frame windows prevents damage caused by weather but for glazing putty, it is not as effective.

This matter deforms the wood and cracks the glass. So it is necessary to reglaze on time.
