Install the existing windows elsewhere after removal?
I have an attached balcony that was put in front of two floor-to-ceiling windows. In order to seal the balcony, I need to remove these two floor-to-ceiling windows and replace them with a door and a new window that has a frame profile about 20 cm deep at the bottom.
Since these windows are only 10 years old and in excellent condition, I would not want them to be "recycled" ..... I am planning another extension on the other side of the house and would like to install the "old" windows there. Is this possible? I.e. neatly/rightly remove them and install them elsewhere?
They are probably attached with three screws on each side. A bit of plaster will probably always be damaged when opened. If you don't want the windows to be scratched, they should have the same protective films when removed as when installed.
If their new effective area needs to be a little wider, this can be compensated for with special hinged profiles. The cost of removal with the possibility of subsequent installation is not much higher than without it, at most a hundred dollars more
