Getting Started with Your New Window Installation
Before your old windows are removed and new windows are installed, you must first double-check all of your measurements to verify that there are no errors. Skipping this step can be very costly in the end. Next, you’ll need to remove your existing windows carefully to avoid harming the structure, casings, or mouldings. These will be reinstalled when your new windows are in place.
As a rule of thumb, you should always change the frames of your old windows. Doing so is the only way to ensure a watertight and airtight seal and keep your heating costs low during the winter. Also, removing the old window frames allows us to detect hidden problems, such as rot on the rough opening.
Setting Your New Windows
At this point, you’ll need to inspect the rough opening carefully. This must be done to make sure everything is in tip-top condition. This is the point where you’ll want to repair old problems so that they dont keep re-occurring.
Before the actual new window installation takes place, you will need to position the window. Proper positioning ensures minimal heat loss and reduces condensation. Be sure to use quality shims, not wood scraps, to make sure the windows are perfectly square, adjusted, and level.
