Changing wood sash windows with vinyl windows

When we left off last week, we had actually eliminated the old wood sash windows and prepared the opening for the vinyl replacement windows. You require to put the window into the opening to make sure it’s going to fit, then eliminate it and run a bead of caulk on the face of the outdoors blind stop where the window will rest. Often, when raising the top into position, the window frame will strike the top of the wood frame.

When you figure out that it’s going to fit, get rid of the brand-new window and set it aside. Raise the window into position once again. Now have your assistant hold the window in position while you raise and decrease the sashes, making specific that the window is square in the opening.

While your assistant holds the window in location, nail your stops back on. If the window has 4 stops, set up the quickest ones. If you have numerous windows to do, i recommend doing the very first window to this point prior to going to the next.

End up the within by caulking the location of the within stop where it satisfies the case, and the point where the stop fulfills the brand-new frame. A quality replacement window will either have a sloped frame to match the slope sill, or it will come with an insert that fits under the brand-new frame to fill the space developed by the sloping wood sill. If you purchase a lower grade window that does not come with anything to fill the space beneath, you can purchase some wood trim to fill the area, or you can get a flat vinyl trim that connects to the face of the bottom of the brand-new frame.

You can purchase devices to cover your old wood sills with a vinyl wrap extrusion. Next week we are going to begin on changing old aluminum windows.
