Ask a window under renovation - C. Rattle

In new constructions, the windows are most often laid in rebate on the inside. They can also sometimes be laid in tunnel, that is to say in the thickness of the masonry, or applied if an insulation is considered thereafter.
In renovation, the installation with conservation of the frame can be done on a window in rabbet, in tunnel or in wall.
