If you’re looking to replace the windows in your Kansas City area home, make sure you know your facts. You can go one of two ways; pocket replacement windows or full replacement windows. The industry-specific terminology can be confusing, so the All-Weather Window, Doors & Siding experts will break it down for you.
First of all, most companies do not offer full frames because it costs them additional work. But, at All-Weather, you can choose from both styles or mix and match in different areas of your home. This could be a great way to spend top dollars on the windows you’ll see the most, and save on other, less prominent windows.
Pocket Insert Windows
A pocket window is manufactured to fit inside an existing window frame already installed in your house. These are very popular because they don’t require a lot of intensive work inside or outside your home, they tend to be less expensive, and they can be installed in 1-2 days. One drawback is that you lose some window space because the pocket windows have a frame of their own, which must fit in the existing frame shrinking the overall glass dimensions in the process.
Full Frame Windows
Full frame windows require more work on your installer’s part. These require new wood or vinyl framing on the inside and outside of your home before the window can even be installed, which means more labor, which of course means they are more expensive. But, full frame replacement windows allow you more glass space, which means more light.
Whichever replacement window option you choose All-Weather carries the materials you need. And you can rest assured we will walk you through the entire process.
