Can I Add a New Window Opening to My House?
Did you ever look at one of the walls in your home and wished that you had a window in that exact spot? Or, perhaps you’ve desired more natural lighting in a room that has few window openings. That’s why many homeowners will choose to have an opening installed where there was never a window before. However, there are plenty of things to consider before adding a window to a wall.
If you’re wondering if adding a new window to one of the existing walls of your home is even possible, the answer is most likely yes. In fact, if you’re looking to brighten up your home, it’s one of the easiest ways to do so. Before adding a new window opening to your home in Boise or the Treasure Valley, Idaho, area, there are several steps that the window company you turn to will take, including:
- Making accurate measurements to ensure that the window opening is being created accurately so that your new window will fit correctly in the opening.
- Carefully create the opening to ensure that the window opening that is made is large enough to accommodate the supporting frame and header of your new window. It may even take an entire day to create the opening as well as remove the drywall and frame in the window.
- Installing the window using a nailing fin or integral flange to secure your new windows to the house.
