What is Full-Frame Vinyl Window Replacement?

When it comes time to replace your old windows, there are two options to consider: full-frame window replacement and pocket window replacement. If you’re doing a home remodel project, a full-frame window replacement provides numerous benefits over pocket window replacements as it is a comprehensive solution for your home! Read on to find out the difference between full-frame and pocket replacement and the best solution for your home.

What is Pocket Replacement?

The alternative option places a pocket window inside the existing window frame. The existing window sashes are removed and the new window is placed inside the existing frame. With pocket replacements, you keep the original frame, trim, and siding intact. It’s a relatively simple process that requires no advanced carpentry skills and is best suited for replacing wood or aluminum windows. However, it leaves you with older, worn parts of the window. 

What is Full-Frame Replacement?

A full-frame window replacement occurs when you completely remove your old window, including its frame and its nail fin, and install a window with an integral nailing flange. A full-frame replacement integrates the new window into the home’s existing water management system. By removing the whole window frame, your new window will be larger and provide more viewable glass for your home. A  full-frame replacement provides great overall value with beautiful, high-performing, durable and energy-efficient windows.
