Wood windows are available in 2 options: New Construction Windows, and Replacement Windows. Most people assume that because they are renovating their home, that they must install Replacement Windows. This is not true. You have the option of installing New Construction Windows as well. The way this is achieved (if you are not planning on changing your siding) is by cutting the existing siding around the window by 3.5” or 5.5” (depending on the look you want), then installing new moisture barrier, complete with a peel & stick waterproof membrane at the sill (bottom), jambs (sides), and header (top) of the window opening.

We then install a bead of polyurethane to the header and jambs of the window, and install the window into the opening, and install a flashing on top of it. Once installed, we install new trim using either comb face wood or fibre cement trim. A bead of polyurethane caulking is then installed between the existing siding and trim, and between trim and window.

There are 3 styles of wood windows available. They are (in order of price low to high): Fixed (solid glass), Slider, and Casement (Crank open). They can be customized to incorporate munton bars as well.

The best time to change your windows is when you plan on changing your siding. This said, the best time to change your siding is also the best time to change your windows! The reason for this is because you will save the cost of the above mentioned labor of cutting the existing siding away (if it is stucco, this can be costly).

There are numerous brands of Wood Windows available. We can help your source out the ones which will meet your needs best.
