When it comes to replacing windows, the installation process is as important as the quality of the replacement windows. If they’re not properly installed, they may not perform efficiently and cause other problems in your home. Furthermore, improper installation may shorten the service life of windows.
You can choose from two types of window installation: (1) insert window and (2) full frame window. Your choice will depend on the current condition of your window frames. We at Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod, a trusted Cape Cod window company, want to help you make the right decision.
Here’s some information about full frame and insert window replacement installation:
Insert Window Installation
With this type of installation, we’ll install the windows straight into your existing frames. One of the benefits of this process is that it gives you the chance to enjoy the latest features of our windows without causing too much disruption in your home. This installation process allows you to keep the original frame, the interior and exterior siding, and the exterior trim.
This is a great option if the frame and sill are on square, in good condition, and have no signs of decay. Furthermore, if the trim and casing can stay in place throughout the process, then you may consider this type of installation.
Full Frame Installation
A full frame window installation is similar to a new construction installation. We will remove the sash and the whole window frame.
This type of installation is for you if the frame is in bad shape and can’t be repaired. You may also have to take this option if you need a bigger opening to meet fire egress codes. This is also the best choice for modifying the shape and size of your window.
Choosing the right installation process for your home doesn’t have to be difficult. Let us help you make a decision.
