Replacing large PW but leaving attached double hung

#1 Post by bestwindow »

I would like to replace a large PW but leave the two original wood double hungs on the sides. Which brand window would look the best when looking at the outside of the house? I am thinking that one with a slimmer profile would be less noticeable. Will it look strange no matter which window I choose? Thank you.

If you cap the remaining double hungs, you should be able to mitigate the visual offset. Are the windows to be left in place equip with Low-e?

Ideally you'd replace all of the windows in one opening at the same time for a variety of reasons, but what you are suggesting is generally possible.
It will limit your options in terms of how to install, and aesthetically the match will have more to do with looking like the existing windows than a slimmer profile.

What's wrong with the pw? If its just a glass issue, you'd probably be happier with the result by replacing only the glass as opposed to the entire unit.
