We may advise full cut-outs of the window itself when replacing. Many companies will give you a lower price when they quote, but the truth is, most are only looking to install what is known as a "fit-in" window. They will remove the glass portion only, and "fit-in" the new glass and frame to the opening. This leaves very little glass surface on the new window, and a lower insulating value. This is important because the most common reason for someone to replace a window is to stop the draft.
By removing the entire window, and going back to the existing studwork, we get a much higher insulating factor, a better seal, and larger viewing area. Furthermore, the window will look as though it belongs and be more aesthetically pleasing. We will finish the window inside and out. All of this is included in the price we give you. We complete our own woodworking for the trim inside, and apply a matching colour caulking outside. If extra aluminum work is needed outside, we will finish it. The only thing left for you to do will be the painting or staining of the inside trim.
If your house is older, and you are worried about preserving the character of the house by keeping the existing trim or jambs around the old window, sometimes your best option is to do a fit-in window. We look at all of these options and, working with you, decide what is best for you and your house.
