WOOD WINDOWS AN overview

Most installation are retrofit.  The old frame is left in place and the new window with its exterior 1 3/4 inch flange covers the exterior siding.  However some home owners prefer to have the old frames removed.  And in some applications, such as when the original windows are a jalousie, their bulky, wide frame ought to be removed rather than cover with a vinyl trim .

Single Pane aluminum windows can be pulled without damaging the stucco or appreciable affecting the flashing which lines the window opening. 

 

Remember there is no free lunch.  It is more work to pull the frames—an average of 15 minutes per window.  

 

About 95% of the windows are installed today are done without pulling the frames.  However, in 1999 pulling the frames was the most common way to install windows.
