vinyl replacement window

Farley Windows is proud of over 50 years of manufacturing quality and innovative fenestration products for North America.

A major change in the window industry has been the advent of certified testing laboratories. Farley not only welcomed these testing practices; we adhere to the most stringent of them all! Every Farley window carries the National Fenestration Ratings Council certificate as well as certifications from Energy Star.  All Farley vinyl replacement windows are manufactured to the standards set by CSA (Canadian Standards Association). Because 80% of the average window is glass, we use only double strength glass, giving you some of the strongest glass available. This glass also greatly reduces the amount of sound transmission allowing you to "Enjoy The View" while enjoying the peaceful sounds of your home, not the neighbor's.

At Farley Windows we take great pride in our craftsmanship and manufacturing process, so why not have the best warranty in the business to back it up. The Farley for Life Warranty covers all components including insulated glass, frames, sash and hardware. Our unique warranty is fully transferable with no additional paperwork and no additionnal charge.

The surfaces of the Farley Windows products will over time collect a layer of surface dust. Normal dusting with a damp cloth will remove this accumulation of surface dust. If you wish to do more thorough cleaning of the products, the following procedures should be followed. Vinyl: A mild solution of liquid cleaners such as dishwashing detergent may be used. For stubborn stains, a cleaner such as Fantastic or VIM may be used. Do not use harsh abrasives on vinyl. Weather Stripping: Weather-stripping may become worn over the life of the window, and should, if necessary, be replaced. Loose or worn weather-stripping is one of the prime reasons for the heat loss and air filtration in windows. Weather-stripping may be purchased at any window company selling replacement parts.

Condensation is the fog that suddenly appears in cold weather on the glass of windows and doors. It’s the formation of moisture on the inside surface of the window. It can obstruct the view, drip on the floor, freeze on glass. It’s natural to blame the windows, but you shouldn’t.

Window condensation is the result of excess humidity in your home. The glass provides a cold surface on which humidity can visibly condense. The fog on your windows is a form of condensation similar to the water you find on the outside of a glass of fresh water in summer. Condensation usually occurs first on windows because glass surfaces have the lowest temperature of any of the interior surfaces in the house. When condensation occurs on your windows and doors, it’s a sign that you should reduce indoor humidity before it causes problems in your home like mildew, damaged paint surfaces, rotting wood, or moisture spots.

It is common for home owners who replace windows to suddenly start having condensation. This is because they now have windows that are airtight and that make the excess of humidity impossible to escape. Your old windows were probably draughty and when wind was blowing in, the slight cracks were allowing the excess of humidity in your house to escape. The new windows are now indicating that you have excessive moisture in your home. Moreover, wood, plaster, cement and other building material used in new construction and remodeling produce a big amount of moisture. When the heating season begins, there may be a certain amount of temporary condensation that appears. Sharp quick drops in temperature can also create temporary condensation problems during the heating season.

•Opening a window for a short time will ventilate the house and dilute the humidity level. The heat loss will not be important. •Install kitchen and bathroom exhaust fans. •Control the source of moisture and increase ventilation •Limit the use of humidifiers •Dehumidifiers can be used if necessary

SCREW LOCATIONS
2. Adjust the shims so that the window is level, square and plumb (see diagram 1). Use the sash to visually
check the squareness of the window.
3. Use the screws supplied to fasten the window to the existing frame. See screw location below. Be careful
not to distort the frame by over-tightening the screws, snug is more than adequate.
CASEMENT WINDOW
Open the sash and install screws at the shim locations on both sides. Do not fasten screws through the sill. Check the operation of the sash to make sure it operates freely. With the unit in the closed position verify that the seal between the main frame and the sash is uniform from top to bottom, if not, loosen the screws
and adjust accordingly.
SLIDER WINDOW
Install the screws at the shim locations. For units over 32” in height we recommend installing a third
screw in the middle of the sides. Do not fasten screws through the sill. When installing the screws we
recommend putting your screws in the outside track on the left hand side and installing the screws in
the inside track of the right hand side. Check the operation of the sashes to make sure they operate
freely from side to side.
DOUBLE HUNG WINDOW
Install the screws at the jamb shim locations on both sides. Do not fasten screws through the sill. For
the top screws, remove the two sash stops (approx. 2” long vinyl piece) from the inside track of each
corner and push the balance housing toward the exterior to allow better access. For the bottom
screws, remove the bottom sash stops located in the outside track and install a screw in each corner.
For a middle screw, tilt in the top sash, or remove it, and install a screw behind the balancer housing
in the outside track (you may need to push the balancer to one side with a flat head screw driver), do
this on both sides. Installing the screws in these locations does not require the holes to be counter
sunk because all the screws are hidden. Check the operation of the sashes to make sure they move
freely up and down.
FIXED WINDOW
Install the screws at the shim locations. For units over 36” wide we recommend installing a middle
screw in the middle of the top and bottom. Pre-drilling a 3/8” hole is recommended.
1. Set the unit into the opening. Use wood shims to block the unit into the opening. See diagram below for
shim location.
4. When the installation is complete, insulate the void between the unit and the opening. Foam insulation can
be used as long as it’s “low expanding”. Assure that the window frame is not distorted in any way.
5. Finishing trim (if required) can now be applied
