How Does New Vinyl Window Installation Work? Start By Choose Your Window Installation Option

A lot of people don’t realize there are two installation options when it comes to putting in new windows: standard replacement and full frame replacement.  If you are thinking about replacing your windows, these two options are best for homes in Cleveland.

Standard Vinyl Window Replacement: Efficient and Economical

Standard replacement involves removing all of the parts of your existing windows with the exception of the frame, which remains.  The new window unit is then fastened into the old frame.  Insulation (fiberglass or foam) is placed in the gap between the new unit and old frame, and interior trim installed to cover this gap on the inside.  The exterior of the window is then typically finished with custom fashioned aluminum coil and caulked to seal.  This is typically the quicker and more affordable option but does result in a slightly smaller window unit.

Full Frame Vinyl Window Replacement: Comprehensive Upgrade

Full frame replacement is exactly as it sounds. The entire existing window unit, including the frame, is removed from the home so that the rough framed opening is exposed.  A new window unit is then fastened into this rough opening. 

Vinyl Window Full frame Replacement Pros

Full frame is a better install option for several reasons:

  • It allows us to fasten the new unit to the exterior sheathing of the house with a nail fin. 
  • We then would tape the nail fin to the sheathing to provide a better weather barrier between the interior of your home and the elements. 
  • The new unit is also of the same size as the old window meaning  you don’t lose any glass size or visibility. 

Vinyl Window Full frame Replacement Cons

To perform this installation option we have to remove (and potentially replace) your interior window trim.  It also requires us to either cut back or remove and replace the house’s siding in order to get the nail fin attached to the home.  This means full frame replacements are more invasive, costly and time consuming than a standard replacement option.  If you happen to be considering a siding replacement as well this is a perfect time for the full frame option as you’d be removing the existing siding in that process regardless.
