Some homeowners that hire NJ Home Improvement Contractors want to replace the existing windows with replacement windows. A replacement window is a window that is made specifically to a certain size. Your NJ Home Improvement Contractor will measure the existing window opening and have a new replacement window made to order.
Another way to replace your existing windows is to remove the window and increase the widow opening by having your NJ Home Improvement Contractor change the headers above the window to make your window opening as large as you would like the window to be. This method is more costlier since your NJ Home Improvement Contractor needs to alter the interior and exterior or the window well. Your NJ Home Improvement Contractor will need to not only remove and replace the header to a sufficient size, but also he will have to reinstall the removed exterior siding and put the interior back together around the window. This will involve reinstalling insulation, sheetrock, and the necessary trim work. For these reasons, installing a larger replacement window can cost more money.
With a standard replacement window, it is a bit easier for your NJ Home Improvement Contractor to install. Your NJ Home Improvement Contractor will measure all the windows that need to be replaced. Then he will have the replacement windows custom made to the sizes that he has measured. Once the windows are ready for installation your NJ Home Improvement Contractor will arrive on the job location and change many of the windows within one day. Pending the amount of windows in your home, your replacement window project should be finished within one or two days.
When installing a replacement window, your NJ Home Improvement Contractor will remove the interior window stop molding. After that, he will then remove the upper and lower sash’s. After caulking the opening to accept the new replacement window, your NJ Home Improvement Contractor will insert the replacement window into the window well until it fits flush against the window opening. He will then fasten the replacement window with the necessary screws. Usually four screws will do the trick. Now just reinstall the removed window stop molding and your window replacement is complete.
