I am interested in learning more about window inserts. We're thinking
of replacing our windows this year, my husband had someone come last
night to measure and provide a quote.
Our house is about 35 years old, and the windows are quite drafty. We
cover a lot of them with plastic in winter.
On the subject of windows, we're fairly clueless. The man who came to
measure was very informative, explained the difference between single
and double hung, inserts vs. completely new windows, etc. We're
thinking of going with the inserts, although he did caution that
there's no way to know if the frames are properly insulated, which is
a bit of a concern. Double hung sounds like a better option, but is
So, what experiences do you fine folks have on putting new windows or
inserts into a house?
