Therefore, it may be necessary for that person to do a window replacement right away. There are roughly two choices for window replacement. One alternative is to do a full replacement, and the other option is to do an insert replacement with only the part of the window where the crack or damage is present.

A pocket window or insert replacement is acceptable when the frame is in good condition. If the frame is not in excellent condition, a complete replacement is necessary. It’s better to replace old and failing windows than to do a partial job and still have issues because of it.

The new window must be 1/2″ to 3/4″ from the opening for a perfect fit. Watch this video on window replacement installation to make your home more efficient.
