How to Decrease or Increase the Size of a Replacement Window Opening

Have you always envisioned a beautiful bay or bow window in your home but aren’t sure if you have the right window opening for one? Believe it or not, you can convert almost any opening to a window and completely change your space. Window alterations can not only improve your home’s appearance and value, but can also add light and function to a room. At Stanek® Windows, we offer a variety of custom replacement window size options to best fit your unique style. In this post, we will discuss the different window sizing options and how they can benefit your home.

Can Stanek Make a Window Opening Bigger or Smaller?

Many customers ask our replacement window design consultants if they can choose a smaller or larger window opening than what they currently have. The answer is: Absolutely! While many window companies offer replacement windows, they do not offer alterations or make adjustments to the window opening, they simply place the same size window into the existing opening. At Stanek Windows, our skilled and trained installers can increase or decrease the size of the opening or fully reframe replacements.

Not just anyone can change a window opening. It can be a very complex task that requires exceptional skill. Altering a window can affect the structure of the house, especially if the window is on a load-bearing wall, so it’s important you find a trustworthy company to do the job right. At Stanek Windows, we employ skilled craftsmen that perform alterations such as widening, shortening or creating openings for replacement windows.

Why is proper installation so important? The installation of a window can impact its performance, energy efficiency and durability. Without proper installation, your windows could fail over time or not perform up to energy ratings. Our factory-trained, Stanek Windows installation staff provides expert installation, delivering unbeatable quality and long-term performance for your windows. In addition, we treat your home with the utmost respect and do everything we can to minimize disruption in your home.
