Retrofit installation means removing of glass, glass stoppers and in some cases horizontal or vertical posts. This leaves the original frame and interior finishing on the inside and brick mould undisturbed and fully intact. Once the new window is in, aluminum capping is installed from outside and in most cases a ¾ cove is attached to the frame and window from inside. Our addition of caulking prevents water penetration to windows, aluminum, brick and siding.
Stud-to-stud installation involves removing of the interior casing, exterior brick mould and the frame of original window. In most cases, new windows come with the factory attached brick mould and jam extension (either wood or vinyl). Casing (trim) is attached to the installed window on inside. Caulking is used on the exterior to seal the gap between brick mould and brick or siding.
Entrance door installations consist of removing the existing doorframe, casing and brick mould. Often, if the sidelight or transom are part of the existing door they will be removed as well. Our finishing process includes casing on the inside and brick mould on the outside.
Sliding door installation consists of removing the existing panels and the frame. The door gets finished with new casing on the inside and aluminum capping on the outside. 5', 6' or 8' sliding doors come in two panels (one fixed and one sliding). Larger sizes are available in three or four panel sets.
Storm doors are typically installed on the brick mould of existing door.

2 new windows in 1890's victorian
This is the second time we have used SOBOL and Archie to install some new windows in our home. As usual, Archie was on time, and he and his worker installed the 2 windows perfectly.

New master bedroom + baby's room windows
Sobol just completed our project and I can't say enough positive things about this company. Our project consisted of a very large bay window, a picture window and a straight forward window in our 'soon-to-be-baby's-room'. Our home is about 100 years old and therefore, we were worried [...] Read More →
