While homeowners don’t always consider window installation first when considering window replacement, learning as much as possible about the process, including the many types of window installation, should be a priority. Understanding what type of window installation your home requires and why, can save you time, money, and even operational failure.
There are 3 types of window installations;
1. Glass Replacement
2. Frame-over Installation
3. Pull-Frame Installation
Glass replacement is when new window glass is installed within the existing frame, preserving interior and exterior trim.
Installers will remove the old glass, clean up the frame from the old glue that was used and insert the new glass into the original frame.
Oftentimes, the main problem lies in the frame and not the glass, replacing the glass where the frame should also be replaced is a “Well-intentioned but ill- conceived” process. That’s why we, at JKR Windows, always require a home visit to recommend what should be done at the start of your project.
● The right glass replacements can be energy-efficient if chosen right.
● Cost effective method to update old windows.
● Lifetime Limited Warranty.
● Only an option if you have frames that are in good condition.
In this process, the original frame will stay and a new complete window will be installed inside of the existing frame. Keep in mind that the new window opening will be smaller than the existing opening since a whole new frame will be installed inside of the existing one. Frame-Over installations require a careful installation by professionals because if it’s not installed correctly, it may cause energy inefficiencies.
● Less Costly.
● Increased energy efficiency.

In this process, the existing window is removed completely, the opening is cleaned and prepped, and the new window is installed directly into the opening. This way, the windows will be sealed perfectly, ensuring that no leakage of water and air can occur. They offer flexibility in choosing a new style for your interior and exterior overall style.
Pull-Frame installations can prevent mold, mildew, and the spreading of water damage.
