Will my window frames need to be replaced to install new windows?
This depends on your needs and your preferences. In most situations, you can retain your current window frames. This involves what are called “retrofit windows.” However, we can also remove the current frames if that’s what you need, providing “new construction windows.”
Whether to go with retrofit windows or new construction windows can depend on a number of factors, including permitting and architectural considerations. Budget can also factor into it, because retrofit windows are almost always less expensive to install. Our highly trained staff will be happy to consult with you on what best fits your needs and your price range.
I just need new windows- what are the differences between Wood, Vinyl and Aluminum windows?
Vinyl is typically the least expensive frame option, though prices can vary considerably due to a variety of factors. These generally include the way the window is constructed and the thickness of the vinyl. These frames require little maintenance and a very strong from an energy efficiency standpoint, especially when the frame contains foam.
Less insulated than vinyl frames, aluminum frames are prone to condensation problems. However, when an aluminum frame has insulating strips that separate the outside and inside — what’s known as a thermal break — it will perform decently in a warm climate. This kind of frame is close to the same price as a vinyl frame.
While aluminum frames cannot compete with vinyl frames in the areas of insulation and saving energy, they’re sometimes required by outside entities, such homeowners’ associations and condo boards, to ensure consistency and/or architectural preservation.
Wooden frames can be good insulators, but only if the wood’s exterior is clad with vinyl or aluminum. It’s also imperative to protect wood frames from the weather by painting them. These frames are more expensive than vinyl — the difference can be as little as 15% or as much as 40%. While cladding adds to the expense, it also saves on maintenance down the road.
