Window Replacement (Brick veneer home)

vskercheJune 27, 2009

Does anyone know how to replace a window on a brick veneered home? I measured the window and picked up a replacement vinyl from Lowes. When I went to start the install, I noticed that there are NO inside stops..just the wood frame. There are plastic jamb liners, and the sashes are spring loaded. If I pull out the jamb liners I can take the sashes out, but The reason for the replacement is that bottom part of the window frame (and partially up the side) rotted out, and there would be nothing for the replacement window to set against. I thought the part that was rottted out was a stop, but waas wrong..The bottom part of the window seems to be aluminum with wood attached. The sides are all wood, and the top looks similar to the bottom..Help is very much appreciated

A replacement choice in windows is based on the wood frame of the original window being sound. If you want to continue to use this window, you need to repair the current frame and replace the damaged parts.
