When you’re having your windows replaced, not a lot of homeowners know that they actually have two choices on what kind of window replacement they can opt for. These two kinds of window replacements are insert and full-frame. But what exactly are the differences between these two?
In this article, the window and commercial roof replacement experts of BFARR Contracting discusses the key differences between the insert and full-frame window replacements.
Insert Frame Window Replacement
Insert frame window replacements is when the new windows are installed within the existing frame. If you opt for this kind of window replacement, only the old sash, hardware, and covers will be removed or replaced. Compared to full-frame window replacements, insert frame replacements are considered as the less costly option as it allows the windows to be replaced faster and for less effort as well.
However, there is a drawback to insert frame window replacements. For instance, you may see a slight reduction of glass space and you need to keep in mind that this is only a viable option if your frames are still structurally sound. To replace your old window with the insert frame process, don’t hesitate to turn to the window and residential roof replacement pros of BFARR Contracting.
Full Frame Window Replacement
On the other hand, full-frame window replacement is when your existing windows are removed down to the studs and a new window will be installed in its opening. Unlike insert frame window replacements, a full-frame replacement allows professionals to inspect and repair any damage the opening sustained. Apart from that, it also offers homeowners with the flexibility to replace your old window style and size with new ones. Unfortunately, as this option is more extensive to conduct, homeowners can expect the overall cost of the replacement project to be higher compared to an insert frame window replacement.
