Full-frame replacement windows are the same as new construction windows. We remove the entire window frame and the sash and replace it with a brand new frame and sash. The result is a weather-tight seal that creates an energy-efficient environment inside your home. By replacing the full frame, you now have options for installing larger windows and opening up your viewing area. Window World can custom install full-frame replacement windows for your home. We install double-hung, casement, and bay windows according to your specifications.
Is a Full-Frame Window Right for Your Home?
Although we perform full-frame window replacement throughout the year, we may find that it is not necessary for your home. Much of it depends on the condition of your current windows. We can perform an inspection to determine what course of action we need to take. We look for the following conditions:
Wood Rot. Installing a brand new window into a rotted frame will create an unstable window area filled with drafts. Essentially, you’ve defeated the purpose of installing a new window into your home.
Window Not Flush. For us to properly install the window so that it is airtight, the frame would have to be flush. If it is warped, bent, or out of square, then we would need to replace the entire frame.
Window Resizing. If you want to change the type, size, or the shape of your window we would have to reframe the entire window area to accommodate the design.
The Design and Installation Process
Once we determine that your window needs a full-frame window replacement, we sit down with you and go over all the available options. You can choose your favorite colors, patterns, dimensions, textures, or type of window you want. We can simulate what the window will look like using our online Design Center. You’ll get an idea of what the window will look like before we begin construction.
In the case of a full frame replacement, we remove your old window and frames all the way down to the base opening. We seal the opening to prevent air and water from drafting in around the window. Once we position the window in the opening, we add a water management system around the window sill. We then insulate the window to prevent drafts, moisture, and insects from entering around the frame.
