Questions about staying under 100 UI on Soft-Lite order

#1 Post by evanskev » Thu Oct 24, 2013 8:35 am

Some of my windows are are just over 100 UI. If my window frame is 33.5 x 67.75 can I order a replacement that is 33 x 67 and save the cash? If so, how can I fill the space properly on the exterior? The exterior is siding with J channel.

The difference in price is about 30% once I get over 100 UI for Soft-Lite.

Cheers,
Evan

What are you current windows?

Yes, you can likely fill the gap but how depends on the current window, set, and trim style.

+1. If the exterior is being trimmed in aluminum this is no big deal. If not, you can get some of the snap in vinyl frame expanders or utilize some other type of trim that would be consistent with what you have,
