Replacement windows can be a great choice when needing new windows and wishing to be able to replace them easily. Replacement windows are created and designed in such a way they can fit into an existing window frame without having to remove exterior trim as it happens with the others. These windows can be built in many different materials and styles, so it is important to decide this and have a clear idea of how you want them at the time of ordering them. If you have any doubts, do not hesitate on asking the manufacturer for guidance.

In order to install a replacement window, you should start by measuring in detail the old one. Use the smallest measurements possible to do this, since it is necessary for the new replacement window to fit correctly. Once you have done this, order the replacement window providing all the information you can about the measurements.

It might also be important to check how the windowsill is; if it is rotten you should replace it as well. Once you are sure everything is ready for installing the replacement window, should start by removing the inside stops of the old one. Do this as carefully as possible since you might need to use them for the replacement window.

Next, you will need to remove the window sashes. In order to do this, you might have to cut through nails. After that, pull out any other nails there might be left in the window frame as well as any caulk until it looks as clean as possible. Once all this is done, you will be ready to install the replacement window.

You should check the window replacement was created according the measurements you provided and it fits inside the opening correctly. Install it following the indications of the manufacturer, and if you have any doubt consult them before proceeding. Do not worry if the window looks smaller than you thought, replacement windows have this effect since the window opening has to be reduced in order for it to fit in the existing window frame.
