Retrofit replacement windows satisfy the market need for a less labor-intensive and a lower cost product that can offer a new look and offer some energy saving factors. There are two types of retrofit windows:
- Retrofits that fit inside the frame and basically “glue” to the stucco by using a flange provided by the manufacturer. This style is usually used in replacing aluminum or steel windows.
- Retrofits that sit inside of a wooden frame (or like), exterior. The factory “flange” is left off. This style is usually used in replacing wood windows or like.
They both are ordered smaller than existing windows, so you do lose some vision space.
Retrofitting can give better energy and sound performance than you currently have and is more economical than the new construction method.
Working within the existing frame profile means that you lose a small amount of glass area, however some manufacturers offer a slim frame profile which some may find more attractive. The big advantage to this type of installation is a significantly lower cost due to the less invasive nature of the installation.
