Full Frame Replacement Windows
Chester County Window & Door offers offers conventional window replacement as well as “full frame replacement windows”. This type of installation is best suited for:
-Homes that have leak issues & water damage to existing window frames
-Customers that want a more complete window installation that ties-in with the existing house wrap.
-Customers expected not willing to loose any of their current glass exposure with a traditional replacement installation.
These windows are ordered with a master frame that includes an integrated nail fin. This nail fin lays flat on the exterior wall sheathing and is waterproofed with bituminous flashing tape and caulking. Essentially, this approach to window replacement removes your existing window frames and starts over at the rough opening of your home’s framing.
While this approach is more complete system, it is inherently more costly. Full fame replacement requires a window with more options and also requires more labor to install. Most often the window trim on the interior needs to be replaced and siding facade needs to be cut back or removed & reapplied.
