Our team at TightSeal Exteriors & Baths completed this window replacement in North Prairie, WI. This customer in Waukesha county was looking for a window replacement company to take care of one of their windows on their house. The frame was old and rotted out, and needed to be replaced. The homeowner wanted an egress window in his basement that cranked out.
- Frame was rotted out and needed to be replaced
- Looking for egress window that cranked out
Our window installers took out the old, rotted frame and did a full frame window installation. We completely removed the rotted frame and replaced it with a new frame.
- Hard to open, air and condensation entering basement through rotted frames
- Moisture, water damage and mold can be a result of the comprimised window frame
This window was difficult to slide open. The rotting frame means air and condensation was most likely entering the basement. This can lead to moisture, water damage and mold. Our window replacement contractors at TightSeal Exteriors & Baths removed the window in the basement for a full frame window replacement.
Most window contractors do not do full frame window replacements. Our team at TightSeal Exteriors & Baths knows every person’s situation is different. For those who are planning to live in the home long-term, or over 5 years, we recommend getting full frame window replacements to address the root of the concern. In this case, doing a pocket install would only put a band-aid over the situation. The rotted frames would still be in the window, causing condensation, moisture and air leaking into your home.
Ask you window replacement contractor about pocket versus full frame window installations. Our window installers at TightSeal Exteriors & Baths knows this is crucial for a successful window replacement. We thoroughly inspect your window frames for water damage, condensation or any other structural damage.

The double pane window is great for our Wisconsin climate and will help keep the basement cool in summer, and warm in winter. The liquid injected foam will further prevent the transfer of hot and cold air. This North Prairie home has a lifetime warranty on its new egress window.
