Full Frame vs. Insert Windows
Knowing the differences between full frame and insert windows will help you make an informed decision on your window replacement. These are two different styles of window. Making the right choice for you home will impact your remodeling project. Here is an overview of the advantages of both Insert Windows and Full Frame Windows.
Full Frame Replacement Windows
Full-frame replacement windows are the same as new construction installations. The entire existing frame and sash are removed and the replacement window is installed in its place. Full frame replacement windows are ideal for homes that have experienced rot or for homeowners who want to change the size or shape of their window.
Insert Replacement Windows
Insert replacement windows are installed right into the existing frame of the previous window. In order for this to work, the existing frame must be in good enough shape to take in the new window. If you are a homeowner and simply want to replace a worn down window with a replacement window of the same size and shape, an insert replacement window is for you.
Without the proper training, it can be difficult to determine whether your existing window frame is durable enough to simply insert a new window.
