Hello Takiya and welcome to the community!

 

Having new windows will save you so much energy and add to the value to your home and you will wonder why you didn't do it sooner.

 

There are two types of windows to buy, there are Replacement Windows and there are New Construction windows. 

 

 

What is the difference between Replacement Windows and New Construction windows? It's very important to know the difference. 

 

A new construction window is inserted into an opening that shows the exposed studs or 2x4's, as if the house were being built for the first time

 

A replacement window has its own frame and is inserted into the old window frame; so you would have the original studs & old frame, then the replacement window goes inside.
