Custom Replacement Windows: A Further Overview
In our previous discussion, we delved into the world of replacement windows and why they’re a popular choice for many homeowners. Here, we’ll take a closer look at the nuances of custom replacement windows, considering their differences and various installation methods.
When it comes to replacement windows, one of the most significant disparities lies in the brands available. Different companies offer varying materials and quality standards. As this is a considerable investment in terms of both finances and time, meticulous research into companies, their material quality, and manufacturing processes is key. Customer reviews and testimonials, coupled with in-person visits to showrooms and meetings with representatives, offer valuable insights before finalizing a purchase for installation.
Understanding the installation methods is equally important. There are two primary techniques for replacement window installations, each catering to different objectives and budget considerations. The first method is the pocket replacement, known for being the simpler approach. Here, the original window frame remains intact, and the new window is installed within it. However, if the original frame is damaged, a full frame replacement becomes necessary. In this approach, the existing frame, sashes, screens, and trim are removed to accommodate the new frame. This is an ideal choice for homeowners aiming to alter window size, shape, or opt for a completely different window style.
