We are planning to remodel an entire house complete with new windows, drywall, and eventually in a few years, new siding.
Since I am "gutting" the house, do I need to use replacement-type windows, or can I use new construction windows?
It is my understanding that you would use replacement windows when you don't want the wall or the trim to be damaged. Well, I am damaging the wall and trim myself, so I am thinking I can use a new construction window.
Also, is there a difference in price between the two?
