New Construction Windows
New Construction windows are designed for use in brand new building projects or when you are putting in an addition. In contrast with replacement windows, each new construction window comes with nailing fins.
While building the house or the new room, the contractor installs new construction windows before adding bricks or siding. There are exposed studs in the building’s framework still, which is where you attach the windows. This means new construction windows are suitable for new buildings as well as additions. You wouldn’t want to use replacement windows in this situation, since they are designed for installation on a building where you are leaving the structure intact.
New construction windows will cost more than replacement windows because of the nailing fins (also known as nailing flanges). As a landlord or homeowner embarking on a new project, it’s easy to remember that it’s best to stick with new construction windows for new projects and replacement windows for cases when only a replacement is needed in the existing space.
Contractors typically find that vinyl replacement windows will be less expensive than ordinary new vinyl construction windows because they lack the nailing fins. Choosing between replacement windows and new construction windows is not about budgetary concerns but is rather about choosing the right type of item for a particular job.
A replacement window fits exactly within the space of the current window frame. The trim and interior wood frame remain, which makes this an easier and quicker job than when putting in entirely new construction windows.
Situations where it is not appropriate to try and get by with a replacement window include rotting wood in the current window frame or when you are changing a window to deal with leaks that let air in and out of the building. Contractors know that in such cases, you need to remove the damaged material and put in a new frame and new window, accordingly.
