There are two basic types of replacement window installation techniques; Insert Replacement and Full-Frame Replacement. Infinity from Marvin offers windows designed for both of these replacement methods. The type of replacement used depends on the condition of your existing window frames and the style of product you choose for your replacement project.
This replacement method is used when your existing window frames are in good condition but the sash need replacement. Infinity insert windows install into your existing window frame with no disruption to interior trim or exterior siding.
This installation method is appropriate when your entire window has deteriorated and needs replacement or if you are looking for a completely new window size, style or appearance. With full frame replacement, the entire window (sash, frame and casing) is removed and replaced.
