INSERT WINDOW VS. FULL-FRAME WINDOW REPLACEMENT

The best windows will only perform well if your Chesterfield, Missouri, windows company installs them properly. Fortunately, Renewal by Andersen ® of St. Louis’ window installers  take pride in a job well done. That is why they consistently score the highest in our customer satisfaction ratings . They use their expert technical skill and judgment to figure out whether the right solution for your home is an insert or full frame replacement window.

Insert Window Vs Full Frame Window Replacement

Insert Window Installation

The insert window installation makes sense when the casing and trim needs to remain in place throughout the installation. They old window frame and sill also need to be in good condition and remain solid. In addition, insert installations make sense when the existing construction allows the sound  use of the insert. Before your installation, our expert will examine the condition of your windows to determine the right installation method.

If our expert in Chesterfield doors and windows determines that a window insert makes sense, then they will take measurements. During installation day, we will begin the process by removing the appropriate exterior and interior stops and the sash. They will also remove all the weights and pulleys if your window is a double-hung. We will then insulate the gaps and weight pockets, and then prepare the surface for a new insert. Your current window’s frame and casing remains in place all throughout the process. Unlike other insert windows, our products have narrower frames and more glass area for a better view.

Full Frame Window Installation

This makes sense when the old window is deteriorated beyond repair or if the existing window frame doesn’t allow insert window replacement. In a full frame replacement, our installation crew will remove the window frame and sash, exposing the rough opening. They will then check for damaged framing, and repair or replace as necessary. They will also check the flashing and drip cap. Afterwards, they will insulate any gaps and prepare the window surface. We will then place your new window into the rough opening, square it, insulate it, and case it with interior and/or exterior trim.

"Everyone I worked with from setting up the initial appointment to the salesman to the installers to everyone who checked on us and kept us updated on the progress of the windows was courteous, professional, and responsive. There’s always someone who is willing to answer your question without jumping through hoops which is rare these days! The installers were on time, did a beautiful job, cleaned up the space better than I expected, and even helped me with some blinds I couldn’t remove and fixed my squeaky front door! I’ve already recommended Renewal by Anderson to friends!"
