If you are shopping for replacement windows, you have probably run across the terms “replacement windows” and “new construction windows.” So what distinguishes replacement windows from new construction windows? Naturally, the logical answer seems like it would be that new construction windows are only used in new construction projects and replacement windows are used in existing homes, but that isn’t necessarily true.
New construction windows are simply replacement windows that come in standard sizes rather than custom sizes. These windows are generally used in your standard new construction project where floor plans are standardized unless homebuyers specifically request customization.
