How Do I Replace A Window Sash?

*When purchasing new windows, make sure to keep all stickers and information on the window itself. Keeping these stickers allow the window manufacturing company to find your purchase order, and to retrieve the exact fitting replacement sash for that window.

Replacing a window sash can take time. With manufactures getting new warranty submittals every day, we want your experience to be as smooth as possible. Every time a window is installed in your home a sticker comes on it – it’s usually located in the top header of the window track. Making sure you keep all the stickers that come on the windows can alleviate some time in the process.

A homeowner is able to submit a warranty through the company that installed the windows or by directly contacting the window manufacturing company.

How Do I Remove A Window Sash?

Many homeowners get windows installed and may not know how to remove or install a window sash. Learn how below!

If you are looking for a way to clean the outside of your windows, you need to first tilt the window sash back, angled, and away from the frame. Second, you are going to lay the sash down at your waist level. Then, you are going to lift one side of the window corner closest to the frame. You will lift this side of the window sash higher than the opposite side and proceed to remove it from the frame.
