Basically, a window is a window…whether you’re building a brand new home, adding a room to your current home, updating a room by transforming an old window into a patio door, or simply replacing old, drafty windows with new models.

Hurd makes both new construction windows and replacement windows. The only difference—if there is a difference—is in how they are installed. Sometimes replacement windows need to be installed in place of an old window without the builder leaving a mark on the old wallpaper. That requires different installation hardware than if you’re simply putting a window into a new wall.

There is one big difference in replacement windows. Most companies offer a very limited range of styles and sizes for their replacement windows. Not Hurd. We offer our complete product lineup as replacements.
