Fit

It is helpful if you have a helper at this point to work outside while you work inside. Test fit your window unit. It should slide all the way into the opening, stopping at the outside parting bead. If it fits, you measured correctly! 888-666-1248

Good bead

Now after removing the window, place a good bead of exterior caulk on the inside of the exterior parting beads on both the sides and the top piece. This will seal the new window to the existing frame. Make sure the vinyl window expander is sitting on top of the window before putting it into the opening.

Same length

It looks like a piece of channel, the same length as the width of the window and is usually shipped in place. Carefully slide the new window into the opening making sure it makes a tight fit against the outside stops. Once in, using your levels, check to make sure the new window is level and plumb in the opening. This is important! If it is out of level or plumb the window will not close or lock properly.

In each side of the window jams, the manufacturer leaves a small window to allow you to insert the screws that will secure the window in the opening. Use the screws that come with the window. Be careful when installing the screw you do not pull the frame out of level or square by inserting the screws TOO TIGHT!

Window Installation

Windows Installation Guys in Delaware can advice to use some paper towels to remove any caulk that squeezed out of the exterior parting beads. You don't want caulk all over you. Have a garbage bag handy for used towels. Check out the window. See how it looks. Is it straight, level and plumb? Operate the sash to make sure they slide up and down easily, lock and tip in as they should. Some Windows have side jamb adjustment screws that allow you to add a little pressure against the sash to "tighten" them up. Do so slowly. You will also receive 4 small plastic covers to go over the holes for the mounting screws.

Exterior Window Installation

These are always a bear to install but put them in. It makes the opening cleaner and keeps out small hands. Next we will finish the exterior. In your window kit, you also received a metal trim piece approximately 3/4 x 3/4" angle that matches the color of the window. This piece will close the opening between the new window and the sill. Remember there is no parting bead located here. Fill the space with some loose insulation and place the angle into the opening sliding it under the window. I have seen them installed angle in or out and it is really whatever looks best and fits the sill the best. Screw the angle in place on the window and the sill with 4-6 screws. Caulk the angle neatly to assure no rain water may enter. Now slide the top expander channel upwards until it is in firm contact with the house exterior trim. Screw this to the window frame on each side. Again, neatly caulk the channel to assure no rain, drafts or critters may enter. The outside is done.
