Replacing wood windows

Over time, any structure falls into disrepair, and the windows need to be replaced. In this case, the windows are replaced with new plastic ones. PVC constructions are cheaper, more reliable, and more durable than wooden ones.

Why do you need to change the windows?

There are many cases in which you need to replace the windows with plastic ones:

  • to improve noise insulation and energy conservation;
  • the glass is damaged, or the insulating glass unit is cracked;
  • the design of the room has changed, and the old frames do not fit the new solution;
  • in new buildings, the builder has installed budget windows unsuitable for this climate.

Modern PVC constructions are more airtight than wooden windows and provide additional features and comfort.

Variety of plastic constructions for windows

The consumer needs to choose the right one for all the variety of products on the market. The sorts of windows in a wooden house can vary in terms of types of construction:

  • single;
  • paired;
  • separate.

Depending on the width of the opening, the type of window construction is selected. The larger the window, the more heat loss will be observed in the room. This means you will have to insulate the building and increase heating costs.

In addition, plastic frames may differ in the number of panes inserted. The smaller the number used, the colder it will be.

The shape of the window often depends on the architectural design of the building and the design solution. By form, the windows can be trapezoidal, standard, round, narrow, or arched.

To make the right choice among the various products represented, you must seek professional consultants' help.

Advantages of PVC constructions over wooden windows

The benefits of plastic double-glazed windows include the following:

  • First of all, many companies provide a complete solution. You don't have to do anything yourself. A representative of the sales organization will come to your home, make accurate measurements, and produce a design for you. After a short time, the products will be delivered to your home, where masters will remove the old window and install a new one. You will be able to use the new frame after a day or so;
  • secondly, the plastic construction is relatively inexpensive;
  • thirdly, the noise level is significantly reduced;
  • Fourthly, the tightness of the joints in a plastic window provides high thermal insulation;
  • Another advantage of PVC construction is its functionality. You can quickly fix the window sash in a horizontal or vertical position.

Technology of work

Initially, replacing wooden windows with plastic involves the manufacturer's choice. But before you make a choice, you need to know some nuances:

  • The design of plastic frames can be different colors, which allows you to choose the shade you want. Note that a white frame will be cheaper;
  • The cost depends on the country of manufacture. However, it is difficult to find an indeed imported product; most often sold products made under license;
  • The double-glazed window can consist of a different number of chambers. The more there are, the more expensive the construction is;
  • the price is also affected by the fittings and the thickness of the insulating glass unit;
  • The production of the window will cost more if its shape is non-standard.

Most of the time, measurement services are free of charge. However, the seller will likely offer you a discount if you need multiple glass units replaced. You can save money if you install everything yourself.

Dismantling the old window

The first step in installing plastic double-glazed windows is preparatory work. First of all, you need to dismantle the old window frame. You must pull the frame structure out of the trough to do this. The next step is to dismantle the window sill. You should know that window sills are different: concrete - then break them with a hammer and cut with a grinder; metal, plastic, and wood, using a chisel and punch, take out as a whole. The removal of the sills follows this. They must be removed if the slopes are made of plastic or plasterboard. Then the insulation remnants are removed, and the ends are protected from dirt and dust.

Look at your window opening. You may need to rebuild it using a concrete screed. If the edges are uneven, using putty, they need to be smoothed out.


Replacing windows with plastic

Replacing windows with plastic - a great choice and affordable price

Today, many manufacturing companies make plastic windows and produce replacement windows.

  • PVC products can be matched to the color of the interior. It should be known that the price of standard white structures is lower than that of colored plastic.
  • The cost of PVC construction depends on the country and the manufacturer.
  • Differ in price windows of three and six-chamber profiles.
  • The cost of plastic construction consists of the prices for the selected insulating glass unit, profile, fittings, and various seals of boxes and sashes.
  • The price of non-standard shape products is higher than the price of conventional rectangular.

An expert will calculate the exact cost after measuring the construction. The measuring specialists come to the house for free.

The approximate price of standard products in a panel house is from seventeen to twenty-two thousand rubles. This also includes the installation of the structure.

Replacement of windows with plastic can be done in singular or plural. When ordering and installing several products at once, companies often offer discounts.


Cost of replacement of windows, seals, and fittings

Often, the company can not only order the manufacture of plastic structures but also call a team of installers to install the already purchased window or repair the old one.

Regardless of what brand was purchased window, it must be installed correctly. If there are mistakes during the installation of PVC constructions, it may be warping of the frame, breakage of locking parts, or loose adherence of sashes.

In the worst case, the frame can burst at the seam. Therefore, installing plastic construction without specific skills and knowledge is not recommended.

Approximate prices for the services of companies:

  • the cost of installation of plastic structures in the panel house from 1000 rubles per square meter;
  • the cost of building and installation of PVC products in a brick house from 1200 rubles per square meter;
  • the price for the reinstallation of the construction (disassembly/installation) is about 2500 rubles per square meter;
  • replacement of single-chamber double-glazed window costs about 4500 rubles per square meter;
  • double glazing - from 5800 rubles;
  • the price for installation of plastic lining per running meter depends on their width and starts at 700 rubles;
  • window sill installation - from 1,500 rubles per running meter;
  • replacement of street sills per p. m. costs 650 rubles;
  • the price for installation of a complete set of pivoting hardware is about 3600 rubles;
  • window handle replacement costs 480 rubles;
  • the cost of replacing the sealant is 160 rubles per linear meter.

You can have your windows replaced with plastic windows in no time at all. But unfortunately, today, many companies compete with each other, fighting for the trust and attention of customers. Therefore, to avoid making a mistake in choosing, you should familiarize yourself in advance with all the offers and conditions of services and compare reviews of former clients of the companies.

When the old windows are out of order, the question arises: do you need to replace the windows with plastic analogs, or is it possible to repair the old ones? If the windows are wooden and their age is over a dozen years, then it is not reasonable to improve them. The repair will take a long time since the details for such windows are made individually, and the cost of repairs will be comparable to the complete replacement of the window.

At the same time, the new construction will not require any maintenance for a long time. The plastic window has good air tightness, durability, and affordability. Replacement of old windows with plastic windows may be required in the following case:

 

  • The old glass pane is ordinary and can be replaced by a modern analog capable of insulating heat and noise.
  • The glass is damaged.
  • The design does not match the creation of the room.
  • The window is no longer airtight.
  • Replacement of plastic windows installed by the builder with more expensive and thicker ones.
  • Frame or sashes are damaged.

Advantages of PVC products

Plastic windows are far superior to their counterparts and have the following positive qualities:

 

  • Well, prevent the penetration of noise from the street into the room.
  • They allow you to save heating resources because they retain heat in the space quite effectively.
  • Suitable for installation in any room, shape, and size.
  • Do not require complex maintenance and well fit into any interior.
  • A high-quality profile has a long service life.
  • Affordable price.
  • A wide choice of manufacturers and models.
  • You can choose any design - from the simplest blind to complex, equipped with burglary protection.

Where do I start replace vinyl window

Replacing wooden windows with plastic begins with the choice of the manufacturer. There are many offers in today's construction market, differing in price and quality. The main points you need to know when choosing:

 

  • Plastic windows can be made in various colors, which is convenient if you have a designer interior. A white frame will cost less than any colored one.
  • The price is influenced by the country in which the products were manufactured, but it is pretty tricky to buy an imported product. Usually, the imported brand name is produced locally, most often under license.
  • Glazing can be 1-6 chambers. The thicker it is, the more expensive the window will cost. Its weight increases depending on the number of sections and the thickness of the frame.
  • The price depends on the fittings used, the thickness of the insulating glass unit, and the cost of other materials.
  • If the size or shape of the window is non-standard, their production will cost more.
  • Many companies offer free measuring of the opening.

On average, replacing old windows with plastic windows, considering the removal of the old construction, purchase, and installation of new windows, will cost about 22 thousand per window. If you change several windows, many companies offer a discount. You can save money on the work by doing it yourself.

Replacing individual parts

Quite often, a complete replacement of windows in the apartment is not required: it is enough to replace only the worn-out mechanisms or failed parts. Such repair is much cheaper than changing the entire construction.

If you plan to replace the windows in the apartment, what is necessary is to check how even the new window is installed. If it is skewed, you will not be able to open it normally, it will quickly fail, the parts will wear out much faster, and most importantly, there will not be enough air tightness. In rare cases, the frame may break, and you must put a new window. That is why you should not go to a dubious installation company or do the work yourself if you are not sure you can do it properly.

Every object has its own shelf life. This is also true for windows, which after some time, will not be able to function fully. Over time, they become a source of drafts, causing low temperatures in the house, dust, and noise. Therefore, in noisy metropolitan areas and quiet suburban settlements, new metal-plastic constructions replace the old windows more and more often.

A few reasons to replace the windows

Not only did windows produced during the post-Soviet period lose their quality, but the first batch of metal-plastic windows was produced more than 30 years ago. In those days, they were not of very high quality, so their active life quickly ended.

Low thermal insulation

During the cold season, despite good heating, sometimes you have to turn on additional heating devices because it is excellent in the house. This happens because the windows are drafty for a variety of reasons:

  • the moving parts of the fittings are leaking air;
  • the seal is cracked and needs to be replaced;
  • the window sills are blowing out or are blowing from under the window sill.

Disturbing noise

Extraneous noises coming from the street hurt human health - they irritate, do not allow to concentrate, and interfere with rest. 

Causes of high sound intensity:

  • windows with reduced acoustic characteristics;
  • Worn seals;
  • unadjusted sash pressure;
  • The wrong window does not provide the necessary level of noise insulation.

Provide silence in the house in the most affordable way - install a two- or three-chamber PVC window. 

Unaesthetic appearance

There are situations when the windows are brought to such a dismal state that cosmetic repairs are no longer saving them:

  • the frames are cracked, have depressions, chipped chips, and the paint is peeling;
  • the fittings are out of date, cumbersome, spoil the overall appearance of the window, and do not function well;
  • glass - cracked, scratched, cloudy.

Modern PVC windows will give the building a well-kept look and elegance.


Window frame deformation

Frames are deformed from improper construction installation, incorrect loads calculations, and condensation. Also, the deformation is low-quality plastic, which dries out from overheating in the sun, absorbs moisture, and changes shape. The owner does not always recognize the deformation of the profile at the initial stage. The defect manifests itself when the window unit jams; it is impossible to close or open.

In such cases, adjusting the sashes does not always help; replacing the plastic window ultimately is better.

Poor airtightness

In old windows, frames are loosened, deformed, and leak from melting and rainwater. Moisture enters the inner glazing space and accumulates in the cracks, leading to water, fungus, and rot in homes.

A dehumidifier inside the glass pane of PVC windows eliminates condensation that occurs with temperature changes.

Lack of functionality

The windows lack all possible modes of opening blocks, the fittings are not equipped with protective limiters, and there is no function to protect against ultraviolet light, noise, and cold—no resistance to mechanical and chemical influences.

Changing the design

By removing the old windows, you can dramatically change the appearance of the building. Non-standard panoramic, triangular, round, portal, and bay windows will decorate the exterior. In addition, well-chosen transparent or tinted windows with stained glass and decorative frames will beneficially transform the most straightforward design of the room.

Improving quality

In modern buildings, plastic systems are often low-budget, low-quality, with fittings of dubious origin. To avoid problems in the future, tenants install new, high-quality, durable double-glazed windows at once.

Increasing security

If the windows have no safety features, it is better to replace them. The new windows have additional protection with a locking opening - "child lock," burglary prevention locks. Although double-glazed windows are covered with shock-proof film, they are challenging to break.

Plastic is covered with a fire-resistant coating, resistant to fire for a long time, and prevents the spontaneous spread of fire.

Labor-intensive maintenance

Wooden frames require additional time and material costs. Old windows must be constantly repainted and treated with protective agents. In winter, they need to be insulated on their own, and to maintain the fresh appearance of new PVC windows, simply wiping the smooth surface of the plastic is sufficient.

There may be different reasons to replace old windows with new ones, but the main factor is to simplify your life and make your living conditions more comfortable.
