Regularly cleaning your windows is one way to help improve their longevity and keep windows functioning properly.
Vinyl Window Replacement
When replacing vinyl windows, there are two installation methods to choose from. The first is called a pocket installation. In this method, only the sash of the old window is removed and the new window slides neatly into the existing frame. This is a great option if you want to try and preserve existing trim or are replacing a similar-sized window into the opening.
A full-frame installation method removes the entire window, including the window frame and trim. This method allows for greater design flexibility, as you can change not only the window, but also the frame and trim colors and styles. This method takes longer and requires more work both inside and outside the home, but includes the installation of a new window, trim and insulation. This can be an especially ideal choice if energy efficiency is a concern.
