As the name implies, new construction windows are featured in the building of new homes or home extensions. In those scenarios, they work well because the studs that support these windows are not yet exposed. This allows for tighter installations that create the seals for problem-free windows.
The Problem with New Windows in Old Homes
When it comes to window replacement in Salem, Oregon, for an older home, new construction windows are no longer ideal. This requires removing the exterior materials around the windows to expose the studs once again. Replacement windows work without the need for this costly step.
The Renewal by Andersen® Difference
Ultimately, what matters is the tight fit. This keeps air and water out of your home, two things that affect the comfort and longevity of a home. Renewal by Andersen® of Portland achieves this by custom building all of our windows according to the exact measurements of your existing windows. This allows us to make sure that the windows we put in are a tight fit through our equally exacting installation standards. We will check throughout the process to make sure that everything is in their proper place.
The Advantages of Our Replacement Windows
Last, our replacement windows in Portland, Oregon, are energy efficient. For our frames, we use Fibrex®. This material comes from reclaimed wood and thermoplastic polymers.
