VIDEO SERIES: Install Insert Replacement Windows in a Brick Wall

Learn every step in the process, from measuring and ordering a window to installing and air-sealing it

Length:
Produced By:

Installing new windows in an old home is a popular home-improvement project. Brick walls, like the ones in this Project House video series, can seriously complicate window installations and confuse even the most experienced builders. That's why we've enlisted remodeler Mike Sloggatt, who has thirty years experience working on brick houses, to show us how to assess the situation and do the job right.  

 

In this video series, Mike will demonstrate how to: 

Assess the condition of the existing window and measure for an insert window (now playing)

Shim, level, and fasten the insert window (now playing)

Air-seal between the new unit and the jamb of the original window, plus install interior and exterior trim  (now playing)

 

Mike decided that an insert was right for this job. Sometimes you will need to do a more-challenging complete replacement. Mike will teach you that entire process in an upcoming series.
