 Post subject: Installation Question - remove sashes ??

I am going to install my first window. It is a Simonton Double Hung.

Is it ok to take the sashes out of the new window frame before putting it into the opening. Install the frame without the sashes and then put the sashes back. It seems like it would be easier to do it this way than with the sashes in place.

Thanks

Technically, that can be done, however I would not recommend it unless it is an extremely large window where weight/size is an issue. Even then, you'd want to re-install the sashes prior to final adjustment so that you can check the reveals insuring the squareness of the unit.

Removing the sash and putting them back in is easy but usually not done because it is extra/wasted time. As HS has said you will need the sash in the frame to set the window anyway.
Weight and extra dexteraity would be reasons why I might put the frame in the hole without the sash.
