The Process of Window Replacement
Most home owners only go through the process of window replacement 2 times in their lifetime. The general process begins before the window installers arrive. Home owners should make their home a safe environment for workers. Kids and pets should be secured and away from work area. Any special needs that you need should be the first items we concern when you call us. (818) 531-1309.
Replacement windows are expensive. The cost of two or three windows might be manageable for most homeowners, but whole-house window replacement can make a serious dent in your bank account. Naturally, seeking out cheap replacement windows is one way to lower costs. But there are other methods of lowering the overall cost of window replacement that may include cheap windows or which can work in concert with more expensive, higher-grade windows.
Two choices of windows and both types of windows are mutually exclusive.
New Construction Windows or Replacement Windows
|New-Construction vs. Replacement Windows
|New-construction windows are meant for clear openings in the house usually with no trim or siding in place.
|Replacement windows replace existing new-construction or replacement windows.
|How to Identify
|New-construction windows have nailing or attachment fins, or flanges, on the exterior side of the window.
|Replacement windows have no nailing fins or flanges. They are smooth-sided for easy insertion.
|New-construction windows are moderately easy to install (though much of the peripheral work is difficult).
|Replacement windows can be tricky for do-it-yourselfers to install due to exacting tolerances.
|New-construction windows are easily available and in stock at most home centers.
|Replacement windows are difficult for do-it-yourselfers to obtain, though there are a number of online sources.
|Where to Use
