Install from inside or outside

#1 Post by lzhang5 » Sun Apr 02, 2006 8:17 pm

I am about to replace all my 2nd floor windows. I found some contractors, some of them told me that they would have to replace the windows from outside and some of them told me that they would do it from inside. I want to know what is the prefered way and who is right on that. The inside guy told me that he would break some of the inside frame and fix those after the work. The outside guy told me that he would break some stucco and he would fix that for me after the work.

My concern is that the replacement window is way thicker than the old one. Will the outside replacement work?

I am living in Florida and own a CBS home.
