How to replace windows on a brick house
DIY, Replace your single pane aluminum windows with double pane vinyl windows on a brick house. The problem with replacing windows on a brick house is that you must jump balls deep into it. The only way to know what you are working with is to destroy your previous window and find yourself past the point of no return. This video mostly covers how to remove aluminum windows from behind the brick veneer an touches briefly on ways to attach and install the new windows. The most important part of this job is the finish out including trim and silicone. As with most jobs the part that people will see is the most important so please don’t scrimp on the last phase of the installation.
The transition from a single pane aluminum window to a double paned window comes with great benefit in efficiency. Before I installed the new windows my house was drafty in the way only caused by great heat transfer. Now that I have replaced the windows with something modern and also insulated the house as you can see in this video ( http://youtu.be/vc8xSQs4l3w ) the house performs much better then I expected. The trans formation of this out dated and inefficient house will be complete once I install a high efficiency multi-split ductless air conditioner. What is good for the wallet also proves to be a benefit to the environment.
