Windows are made a lot of ways, for a variety of reasons.
There are anodized aluminum windows with or without thermal breaks, vinyl windows of differing types, wood windows, wood clad windows….am I beginning to sound like Bubba’s shrimp list in Forest Gump? It’s good to know there are options. But most people meet their objectives by finding out the performance and warranty specifications on a vinyl or aluminum window. The reason is that wood and wood clad windows are significantly more expensive to purchase, and require careful attention with an eye for maintenance. The basics are that the frame and the glass need to be energy efficient and attractive. And it doesn’t take all day to get the basic information you will need.
Installing Replacement Windows
There are two basic ways to install replacement windows, and you will want to consider each in terms of cost and function. The more invasive method is to remove the exterior of the siding or stone in order to remove the entire window, including the “fins” that attach the window to the framing of the structure. The other way is to basically insert a new window into the existing opening once the old window frame has been removed. The second method is more common due to over-all cost. Masonry work is not required, and it needs a minimum of drywall touch up. This is close to the last consideration you will have, but you will want to know the options and costs.
Work with people who others know and trust. Get references, check Angie’s List and the BBB. If you are replacing windows, the people doing it are as important, or maybe more important, than the product choice.
