WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REPLACEMENT WINDOW SYSTEMS AND NEW CONSTRUCTION WINDOW SYSTEMS?
The new construction style window system goes down to rough opening of your window and new interior trim and jambs are installed with this process. Replacement window systems you just remove old window sashes and install new window inside of existing opening and all interior trim and jambs stay the same.

WHAT IS THE MAIN CAUSE OF CONDENSATION INSIDE YOUR HOME?
Condensation inside of your home is caused by excess humidity (water vapors) in your home. Many times these humidity issues arise in the kitchen & bathroom areas of the house.
Another cause for excess humidity in your home can be outside air that enters the home thru older and/or drafty windows and doors. This not only allows moisture into the house but can lead to a drafty and uncomfortable indoor environment.
