These are generally more difficult to install as the whole part has to be removed and re-installed. In such cases it is better to consult a professional to do the work, to avoid any unnecessary costs later one.

The other type is type 2 installation. This kind of installation is done by fixing the new window within the structural base of the old one, and is usually the easier one to be carried out. Although this kind of installation has its won disadvantages, some of them being- -If not sealed properly they definitely result in some kind of water seepage and leakage. -Also the visible area of the new window is greatly reduced, as it is installed over the old window, thus providing a smaller viewing area.
