Replacement Installation Methods
Depending on the age and style of your home, Infinity from Marvin offers two window replacement methods. Both methods are designed for maximum efficiency and minimum disruption to your household.
The insert installation method is used when your existing window frames are in good condition, but the sash need replacement. The frame-in-frame insert design is installed into your existing window frame with no disruption to the existing trim, interior walls or exterior siding.
The full frame installation method is appropriate when your entire window has deteriorated and needs replacement or if you are looking for a totally new window size, style or appearance. With full-frame replacement, the entire window (sash, frame and casing) is removed and replaced.
Whatever your replacement needs, Infinity from Marvin has the solution.
