Insert vs. Full-Frame Replacements: Which One Do You Need?

Window services can also be divided into two categories: insert and full-frame replacement. Understanding the difference between these two types of window replacement can help you find better service for when your windows are showing signs of a problem.

The big question that many homeowners face, therefore, when replacing their windows is whether they need an insert replacement or a full-frame.

Replacement Windows

It’s important to learn at least the basic components that make up your roof or any other part of your home. The same is true for replacement windows. Luckily, there are only two major parts in a window replacement you need to be familiar with: the frame and the sashes, which includes the glass.

Insert Window Replacement

With an insert window replacement, you’re only replacing the “inserts” of a window. These are the sashes and glass components of the window. The frames and trims remain untouched and preserved. This is helpful when the problems are minor and can be fixed by simply changing out the defective parts. Because insert window replacements are only a partial replacement, they are also less expensive.Full-Frame Replacement

As you may have guessed from its name, window contractors will replace the entire window in a full-frame replacement. These are often done when the damage has become too serious. It also allows you to choose new trims and finishes, and update the look of your home. The main drawback is that these are often more expensive than an insert replacement.
