How do new construction differ from replacement windows?
The main difference in new construction and replacement windows is the procedure of installation. New construction windows are installed before siding, which allows the window fins to be directly nailed to the exterior sheeting and framing.

Many window manufacturers, such as Milgard Windows, will customize windows to meet the dimensions and specifications needed.
