how difficult is it to replace windows?
my house is about 30 years old and has aluminum single pane windows. the house is brick, and there is no outside trim, the frame of the windows simply butts up against the brick and has caulk to seal it. i would like to change the windows out to at least a double pane window, but how hard would it be? do they make full replacement windows that install from the inside and NOT just fit in the old frames? the previous owner had one of the garage windows replaced with a new one that fits in the old frame and i really do not like the look of it. some of the windows i could reuse the frame, but several are in such disrepair that even the frame is unusable.
there are 9 36x60 windows, 2 of which fill a 6ft opening as a double window, 6 36xabout 48 windows i don't rememeber the exact measurements, and then 2 sliding windows that are about 2.5-3ft high and 6 ft wide.
i will have to do these a few at a time due to budget constraints, but before i even try to start i need to knwo if this is soemthing i can do or if i should hire it out and pay twice what it would cost DIY.
