Replacing your Caledonia house’s windows doesn’t have to be an aggravating ordeal any more.  Vinyl windows are available in both a “New Construction” version and a “Replacement” style.  Insert, pocket, or slide in windows are usual phrases associated with replacement windows.  New construction windows are typically installed with nailing flanges in openings on new construction Caledonia buildings  or where new windows are needed because of rot on existing window frames. Vinyl windows are now available in all styles and sizes, most often being “custom sized” to fit properly.
