What you require:
- Reciprocate saw
- A wooden bar
- Screw gun
- Corner bead
The first thing to start with is to measure your window correctly. While using a brick, measure it to enable you make correct adjustments Order or make a purchase of vinyl slides. The existing window must be kept aside. Use a razor to cut the caulk, then use the reciprocate saw to cut the middle of the window. Check the walls, if there is a pry window or glass. These two must also be removed. There are also some screws, which are hidden behind the strip and these screws should also be eliminated. In addition, you must also clean the opening of the shop vacuum.
The opening in the window will need to be leveled. Make screw holes in each of the corners to plumb effectively. If necessary, get some shims. The windows are required to fit perfectly well. When you complete, ensure the window fits properly. Check a couple of times to see if the window fits properly. The other thing to check is the gap. The window should have minimal or no gap. If there is a gap inside the caulk, add drywall or trim. The advantage of silicon window is that it may be painted or left unpainted.
A corner bead is used to add drywall. The bead ensures that you place the right amount of drywall. After nailing the corner bead, apply a lump sum of drywall. The other alternative is the use of a Dura bond, which is time sensitive to make the filling on the corner bead. In many applications, the durabond always works faster. The last procedure that you need to cover is painted. Do the painting after the wall is dry.
Safety measure: It is always vital to wear gloves when working on brittle materials such as glass.
