Concrete encased basement window
O.K. I have this window with a steele frame that is set into the foundation.
It's from around 1980.
Is there a way to put a repacement vinal window in?:confused:
I think to repace the window I have to cut out the window frame.
So no bites.
Home crappo and Blow's see some but they seem to be standard size ro not one like my situation.
So far $102.20 to $200 from them.
So is this a basement window? How is it "set into the foundation"? And what kind of foundation are we talking? Poured concrete? Concrete block?
Without seeing a picture, I can't say what you'll need to do to get the old window out. I suspect they might have essentially set it in place, then mortared around it. I that's the case, it should be fairly easy to break up the mortar & remove the steel frame.
From that point, if it was mine, I think I'd build a frame out of either green-treat or cedar 2x8s, install it in the opening, then install the window.
Again, without more information, I don't know what you're looking at regarding sizes, etc.
The steel frame is surrounded with pored concrete!
No motar and the frame is set in.
The steel edge 1 1/2 " that wraps around is flush with the concrete.
The steel frame seams stamped steel.
You have two sides / a bottem and a top!
