Window How To Manual
Welcome to the Window How To Manual website! Ever since glass was invented windows have proved to be a remarkable way to shield people indoors from the elements even while allowing them to take advantage of the ambient light outdoors. In ancient times windows were so expensive, they were owned only by the very rich. Today, very nice, high-tech windows are in most houses and buildings.
This website will show you how to install a glass window. We begin by giving you a bit of information about the various kinds of windows available and what their uses are. Next we get into window specifications which explains window insulation and light admitting properties.
Installing a window where there was not one before is not as complicated as it may sound. We will show you how to frame a wall to receive a window, as well as some of the things you will need to know to put the window into place. If you have old windows that need replacing, we show you how to install replacement windows, too. Finish work and adding trim is where you can make your own personal touches.
In cold and hot climates (it seems like we all live in one or the other), storm windows are a popular way of inexpensively and easily improving the insulation value of your window openings.
As always, safety is of paramount importance.
A way to make windows more UV resistant without going through the cost of replacing them is to install window-film.
