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.

Replace 6 windows
SOBOL is a company I'd be pleased to recommend to anyone. Archie and his friendly, reliable team easily handled the unexpected posed by our 90 yr old home. We're especially pleased with the addition of insulation in the walls around our bay window, a value-add which we didn't expect.
If you've read any of my prior reviews then your aware then you know I've been through the ringer with my house and I've seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. I've used a myriad of contractors to renovate and repair my home so when I tell you that Sobol does excellent work take it at face [...] Read More →
Windows and doors replacement
We had a great experience with Sobol Inc. in installing our windows and doors. We had called three other window installers who never got back to us once they found out we wanted to keep our current california shutters. But for Archie this wasn't an issue at all. He was quick on the [...] Read More →
