Renovation Complete Tear-Out of Existing Frame and Sash

Complete Tear-Out of Existing Sash and Frames

Applicable when a complete tear-out is necessary for historical, aesthetic or structural considerations.

  • Custom-size units available
  • Good for virtually any existing opening

Depending on the needs of the project, wood or aluminum-clad wood windows can be used to replace existing wood or metal windows when a complete tear-out of the existing frame and sash is required

Replace with Aluminum-Clad Wood Windows and Frame Expanders

There are many options available for replacing the existing wood or metal windows with aluminum-clad wood windows. One approach is to replace the existing frames with wood blocking and cover the blocking on the exterior with the Pella Frame Expander System.

  • It provides an economical method for replacing old wood or metal windows
  • Pella aluminum-clad windows and doors have an accessory groove that allows for the use of the frame expander system
  • Made of low-maintenance aluminum cladding that perfectly matches Pella products, these frame expanders can be used to cover the new blocking
  • Windows need to be accessible from the exterior to use this type of installation

Replace with Aluminum-Clad Wood Windows and Brickmould

Replace with Aluminum-Clad Wood Windows, Receptor and Subsill

A second approach is to replace the existing wood or metal windows with aluminum-clad wood windows and a Pella receptor and subsill system. Receptors are often used for multistory buildings requiring installation from the interior or when a more robust installation method is desired.

Replace with Wood Windows

There are also many options available for replacing the existing wood windows with new wood windows. One approach that involved a complete tear-out of the existing wood windows is shown below. The details for both the existing wood windows and the new wood windows are included.

  • The first step is to replace the existing wood frames with new treated wood blocking at the head and jambs
  • Then the new wood window can be attached to the blocking with clips or anchored to the blocking through the window frame
