new construction vs replacement
I am looking to replace some old windows (original to the house 1970's) and have a couple of questions.
1- I have a new addition to the house(4 yrs) that has Pella wood windows (don't really like them). I don't like the upkeep of the wood and so was thinking of going with vinyl for all the new replacements...any thoughts on that.
2-One of the windows I am replacing has a semi circle transom above two double hung windows...the sill is rotted and I am thinking (not sure though) that I will need new construction windows so that the sill can be replaced...How can I tell if the transom and double hung are one piece or two (top arch and two windows below)
3- When they do new construction windows does that mean that ALL the trim needs to be replaced on the inside?
4- Can you think of any questions that I must ask in order to get the job done well.
I truly feel like I am at the mercy of the construction people since I have no clue as to what to expect from them .
