What are the advantages of custom replacement windows over pre-made, standard-size windows from a big-box hardware store?
Simply, custom windows are made to fit perfectly, they provide the best energy efficiency and can be installed much more easily and with very little mess. Installing standard-size windows often requires that you add brick or siding to the exterior, and drywall or other materials to the interior of your home.
