This method of installation involves removing the glass section of the existing window and installing a new window on top of the existing frame.
Full Frame Installation
Full Frame installation involves removing existing window with its corresponding frame and installing a new window in the rough opening of the wall. We prefer this method of installation because it provides a complete replacement of the window as opposed to partially replacing a window.
The price difference between full frame and retrofit installation is about 10 – 20% with full frame being more expensive.
