Wood Window Unit Replacement
THE INSTALLATION PROCESS
All of the deteriorated elements of the window are removed, NOT covered over. An entirely new window unit is installed to meet the existing interior mill work. This process allows for a better installation, in less time and with less dirt. Only the new window needs to be decorated. Nobody else offers this type of installation.
