Installations


What type of window installation is best for you and your home?

     Replacement (sash-only) windows are installed in the existing window frames, leaving both interior and exterior trim in place. Since the old frame is left in place, installation is quicker, easier and less expensive. Many older-style windows used sash weights and open weight pockets, which allow cold air to come in around the windows. Even multiple windows had to be individually framed with open weight pockets between each window. he replacement window replaces most, but not all, elements of an existing window. The existing window's frame is retained, and the replacement window is fitted into this frame. Thus, the glass area of the replacement window will be slightly smaller than the existing window. Replacement windows typically are vinyl, with sealed glass.

 

                       Pros

                       Cons

  • Less expensive
  • Can be completed quickly
  • No damage to siding/trim
  • Wider frame means some glass area will be lost
  • Some styles look unprofessional
  • More prone to leakage

 

     New-construction windows (also known as complete frame removal)  the original window frame is completely removed and are installed from the outside, with no interior or exterior trim in place at the time of the installation. Siding and window trim are installed after the windows are in place. The full-frame method is best if interior and exterior window trim is being replaced.

                       Pros

                       Cons

  • A more "custom" look
  • Less prone to leakage
  • No loss of glass area
  • Usually requires damage to trim
  • More expensive
  • Takes longer to install


Door Installation


     There are many ways in which to replace an entry door. Our preferred method is to remove the entire wood frame, door sill and interior/exterior trim of the existing door and start with a fresh, new construction-like opening. Installation includes 1½" wood frame, aluminum sill (including up to 10" in sill extension), liquid foam insulation, new interior select wood trim, aluminum-clad brickmould and jambs for a maintenane free exterior, as well as a Schlage deadbolt and round knob passage set.
