Hi, I have question on replacing 20+ yrs aluminum windows at our home. I am
replacing them with Pella brand replacement vinyl windows.
The old window frames were narrower (33in) outside than inside (
wall-to-wall 34 3/4 in). The rough opening (stud-to-stud) was 35 3/4 in
So far I managed to replace 6 in the rear. The rear of the house has wood
siding. It went smoother than I initially thought.
I was able to pop the outside molding, remove the nails for the fins and
take the old window out. I then framed the new window and trimmed the
outside molding to fit the new size. There was hardly any damage to the
inside dry walls.
I would like your opinion how to go about replacing the window on the front
of the house. The front has brick siding which I dare not disturb.
What is the correct measurement of these windows. Since it is flush with the
outside brick work, should I order for rough opening of 33in?
But this will also leave a gap on the inside. What is the best way to patch
thanks for your time
