replacing "odd" shaped windows in my house

I have 2 ground level windows in my basement - the house is a 1920 colonial. the 2 windows are about 31.75" wide and 23.75" high. I can't find any new replacements for that size on line.

do I remove and ask someone to just re-install the glass? any advice appreciated.

Replacing the glass is the easy way. However, what condition are the frames in? Consider glass-block for a basement. Security and brightness.

What type windows are they?
Are you wanting to replace just the glass, just the sash or the whole unit?

Stock windows come in stock sizes, but custom windows are available. They can be made to whatever size you want or need. Of course the custom sized ones are more expensive.
