 Vinyl Window Installation

Author: Trombs (207.190.205.---)
Date:   

I am in the process of evaluating whether or not to have Harvey Regency vinyl replacement windows installed in an 80 year old house. Question I had was that installer said that he would recommend installing mechanical fastened frame because they look a bit better installed because they can be put in a way so that if the old opening is not perfectly square, they can put the window in so that the window does not appear to be un-level with the existing opening.

Don't quite understand this; I figure whether it is mechanically fastened or fully welded window has to still go square so that sash opens correctly.

Any help with this would be great....thanks.
