Fitting a Vinyl Replacement window in the Rough Opening


C

CJ

I am installing a vinyl replacement window (30 1/4 inches by 44 1/4
inches) and the rough opening is 30 3/4 inches by 45 inches. I have
taken out the old window and I have fit the new one into the rough
opening.

My question is: Does the new vinyl window allow for extension left to
right and top to bottom to make it flush with the rough opening? Is
there a screw(s) to modify the dimensions of the window once the
installer has it in place. I know I have to caulk the inner perimeter
of the window once it is fully installed.

You need a good pair of shears or cutter and maybe a hacksaw. That
plus plenty of caulk will make it look like it fits.

When I had mine installed, (aluminium replacements, not vinyl) the
installers had 10' long sticks of aluminum with a white baked on
finish. It was about 1 1/2" tall with a 1/4" foot on one side, kind of
like asymmetrical angle iron. They got them level and plumb then
trimmed them out with the angle aluminum. It sounds more crude than it
looks, I'm actually pretty happy with the job.
