Which Window Installation Option Is Right For You?

Jan 30, 2023

How old is your home? Does it look its age? Trying to make an older home look brand new can be a tough job! Many times, we see customers who have had their windows replaced before, who already need their frames replaced! This is usually because of rot or damage from the previous window installation that was not taken care of correctly. Whenever we start a project, we take extra precautions to check for damages to your frames, door jambs, or walls that may be best addressed before we replace your windows.

Pocket Replacement vs. Full Removal

When you hire us to replace and install new window treatments, we give you a few options. Window replacement can be done one of two ways. The first is “Pocket Replacement” that keeps your existing framing and woodwork intact. “Pocket Replacement” will save cost and will preserve classic woodwork and protect tile walls etc. If there is significant rot in the frame or the existing woodwork is worn, then a “Full Removal” may be called for. “Full Removal” is just that. We remove the entire frame and replace the existing window, size for size. This allows our carpenters to address rot or structural damage. We also replace the existing woodwork to make the openings look “new”, not “replaced.” Our consultants will give an honest assessment as to which method is more suited to your project.

 We had a new patio door & entry door installed by them and had a wonderful experience from start to finish! 
 We had 27 windows and a door wall. The crew were hard working and never even took breaks. They vacuumed around their work areas and left the house in great shape. Very little clean up on my part. Bill gave us instructions on our new windows and noted 2 problems with the window that will be taken care of. Greater than a 5 star company! 
 Had a great experience with a patio door installation. Bob Dietz was very informative, and offered great suggestions. Install was super smooth and they look and operate awesome.
