Replacement windows are a nice way to change the appearance of your home. There are lots of people who replace the old windows after buying a new house. You can always hire a professional for installing replacement windows. It is not a very difficult thing to do, but it requires a certain amount of skill. If you don’t do it perfectly, the purpose of changing the windows is not fulfilled. There are some things that we should know before going for the installation of these windows.
For newly constructed buildings full-frame windows are useful. On the other hand, replacement windows are manufactured so that they can be fitted into window openings that are already present. Old house owners generally go for installing replacement windows. There are a number of regular sizes offered in this range. They can be as narrow as 11.5 inches to as broad as about 68 inches. Replacement windows are available in various materials like wood, vinyl, fiberglass, vinyl-coated wood and aluminum covered wood.
Replacement windows are made in three kinds namely sash kits, insert replacements and full-frame systems. Sash replacement kits include parts such as jamb liners and sash that can be put into an old window frame. An insert window kit comes as a complete assembled window with another frame that can be installed instantly. It is also known as a pocket window since it can fit into the current opening and then secured to the previous side jambs.
Full-frame systems come with a complete frame that consists of head jamb, side jambs and sill too. In cases where the old window’s frame, jambs or sill is rotted, full-frame replacement windows are the only choice. This is because the system contains all the parts that have to be replaced. There are many more factors to be considered while installing replacement windows.
The most important part in installing replacement windows is taking measurements of the existing window that has to be replaced. If you go wrong with that, then you may end up ordering the wrong size replacement windows. The vinyl windows are made to order, so it is not possible to return the product after finding out that they do not fit in well. After you have taken the dimensions, remember to get it done from a technician for a final decision.
