 Retrofit vs. tear out installation

Author: Maryann (---.dsl.scrm01.pacbell.net)
Date:   

I live in the N. California area and am going to replace my 40 year old windows. My biggest question is which kind of installation is preferable? Each installer points out the negatives of the other type. I'm leaning toward retrofit because my house is mostly stucco although I do have some wood siding and brick. I also do not have any leakage problems etc. Does anyone who knows about installing windows in California have an unbiased opinion? Thanks
