Window replacement: the best method

There are several methods for replacing window frames. The choice of the best type of installation depends on several factors, but it is always essential to carefully evaluate:

  • The type and condition of the old window frame (wood, metal, etc.)
  • The type of anchoring of the old window to the wall (walled with brackets, inserted on the counter box, etc.)
  • The presence or absence of wooden or metal counter-boxes
  • The size of the windows

The place of installation: whether a construction site or an inhabited house

Application of certified insulators – foams, sealants and tapes certified according to specific standards will be applied to the entire perimeter of the window to ensure the insulation between the new frame and the masonry and to block water infiltration

New frame fixing which is firmly locked with special screws to ensure adequate stability and checking with the spirit level so that it is level and perfectly orthogonal

Installation of new doors that are hooked onto the hinges and adjusted.
