In our present economy houses are not selling as quickly, so many people are turning to remodeling or upgrading some parts of their homes to make them more appealing to either themselves or a buyer. One of the most common major renovations is to get replacement windows. This is often done to give the home a more appealing appearance, add a new style, or to make it more energy efficient.
Windows that are designed to replace the old ones are usually specially made to fit into the frames that are already in the home. These are different from those ones that are put into new homes in that they are installed from the inside and you don’t need to have any trim removed to put them in.
In this article, I’m going to talk a little bit about what we do to replace the windows in a home.
When getting replacement windows, the first thing we do is prepare. This includes figuring out what you want your new ones to be made of and whether you want double hung or picture style. Then we get the dimensions of the opening where it is to go so that we know the size of windows to replace with.
After preparations are complete, then the installation process begins. To make sure that the window will fit into the prepared opening, is by sitting it in the opening before actually fixing it in the space, then we can take it back out and caulk the edge of the frame. Now we put the window back in, making sure it is level. Then we put the stops and frame back around the inside and outside of the window, by caulking and nailing it together.
