I'll be fitting a pair of porch doors next week, and would like an
opinion on which way the glass bead should be.
The doors have 10 pieces of glass,the door is rebated on one side, with
4 pieces of beading for the other side to hold the glass in.
My first thought was to put the rebated side, outside - far less chance
of water ingress, as no joints at the corners.
The doors can be fitted either way round.
Is my thinking right?
Also, fitting/sealing the glass. Is putty still the thing to use for
such a job, or is there an alternative in a tube now?
