Thank you for choosing Brock for your window/patio door replacement project. We're very happy to hear of your contentment with the process in a whole. We also appreciate your advisory regarding the differentiations of brick-to-brick and retrofitting.
A retrofit installation is when the replacement window is installed into the existing frame, leaving all surrounding areas intact. Retrofitting is a practice often done on older homes where the homeowner wishes to keep the historical character with the added benefit of new and improved units. Whereas a Brick to Brick installation involves removing the complete frame, casing, jambs, brickmould and trim. This route is often the more sought after process as it involves clearing out any deterioration and is cosmetically, more appealing.
There is undoubtably a price difference between retrofitting and a brick to brick installation, but each have their own unique benefits and each homeowners preference varies.
Thank you, Elvira! We truly appreciate your 10-star feedback and look forward to the opportunity to work with you again.
