Then remove all the wooden parts of the frame and clean the opening, removing all the dust and construction debris. Now the opening is ready for installation of a new plastic double-glazed unit.


In the complete set with any ready window there should be a podstavochny profile. In it, drill a hole drill with 4 holes in the places where the double-glazed window is fastened to the opening.


Lay a seal around the perimeter of the frameVapor permeable tape. Expose the profile by level and pre-fix it with wooden spacers. At the level of the holes made before, punch the perforator into the wall. Insert the anchors into these holes by stretching them. The mounting profile is fixed in the wall.


Then the entire perimeter of the opening must be carefullyMoisten with water and blow out all the gaps between the wall and installation profile with foam. When the foam dries from above, it occurs after 20-30 minutes, outside the window it is necessary to mount the ebb with screws. Under the ebb, pour a little foam, so that in the future the water does not bang loudly on low tide.


From inside, a mounting foam is poured on the place of the future window sill, a window sill is installed, leveling at the installation level, and a load is placed on it so that the foam does not lift it when it is expanded.

When the foam dries, its excess is cut off, and from within, the gap in which the foam is filled is covered with a vapor barrier tape. On top of the junction of the frame and the walls are covered with plastic panels.
