I want to install PVC windows in renovation, but I want to keep my folding shutters in wood (very good condition and good insulation): is it possible?
Keep blinds on the occasion of replacing windows is theoretically possible, the fixed part of the joinery (the frame), being preserved in the case of the installation of windows "rehabilitation". Everything depends on the original installation and the space available between the shutter and the profile of the new carpentry, which covers the old frame. Note that new louvers or shutters will provide much better insulation as your current louvers, even if they are in good condition. You can also get a tax credit for this equipment (labor and products).
