Installing Replacements

Many people hire Adams North contractors to install their Adams North replacement windows, and this is a viable (and wise) option for people with little home improvement experience. But virtually anyone with basic tool know-how can put in a retrofit window. If a new window requires structural changes, leave it to the pros. Otherwise, measure carefully and follow the manufacturer's instructions to install your own and save.

Adams North replacement windows are designed to fit into existing window openings. If the existing jambs, frame and sill are in good condition, an insert replacement or pocket window is simply fitted into the opening and fastened to the jambs. Sash-replacement kits are also available to give the window new moving parts.

The first step is measuring, and buying appropriately-sized Adams North replacement windows is of utmost importance. You will want to take three width measurements and three height measurements, each at different spots on the frame from jamb to jamb. If the frame is not totally level, you will come up with different measurements. Take the smallest height and the smallest width, and order accordingly. Also measure the squareness of the frame by taking both diagonal measurements; if they are not within 1/4-inch of one another, you will need a full California window frame replacement.

First, remove the old sash from the frame by removing the interior wooden stops to take out the bottom sash, then removing the parting beads to free the upper sash. Pry off the jamb liners if you are replacing them, and remove old sash weights. Prime the frame for the replacements by scraping off old paint, sanding the jambs and repainting the frame.

Prepare the frame for insulation by drilling three holes each in the sill and head jamb. Spray in expanding polyurethane foam until it oozes out to block air. Let the excess dry, then scrape it off. Apply caulk to the exposed inner face of the exterior casings and along the sill.

Standing inside the house, place the window in the sill and tilt it upward until it is set in place. Hold the window in place by inserting a 2-inch screw loosely into the upper side jamb. Lock the sash closed. If there is a gap, insert a wooden shim. When the window is inserted squarely, screw it in through the manufacturer's holes. Trim the shim so it is flush with the window.

From the outside, caulk any gaps that are 1/4-inch or smaller. Larger gaps must be insulated with foam rubber. Reinstall the stops and prime and paint the finished replacement window.

Problems with Adams North Windows

Homeowners should inspect their Adams North replacement windows regularly to catch any problems early. Problems left untreated can lead to more frequent repairs and replacement. Keeping windows clean and well-maintained will significantly extend their lifespan, giving Adams North residents greater return on investment.

Look for condensation around the panes. Condensation can form in cold or wet weather if the window is not sealed properly with caulk or weatherstripping. The wet film begins as only a nuisance, but constant moisture causes rot and breeds hazardous mold. If you see condensation, caulk the frame and add replacement weatherstripping.

Wood frames can splinter and crack over time if they are not maintained. This can allow moisture to rot and swell the wood and invites insects to infest the wood. Wood windows must be painted fairly regularly. With annual painting and regular inspection, wood Adams North replacement windows can last 50 years or longer.

All parts of Adams North replacement windows need regular cleaning to keep them functioning. Clear the tracks of sash windows of dirt, debris and paint to prevent sticking, and lubricate the tracks with silicone spray to keep them opening smoothly. Also clean the weepholes in window sills. These are the drainage holes that keep rainwater from entering the home, and blockage can cause nasty water damage to your Adams North replacement windows and home's interior.
