Can you close off a window?
Cindy on Jun 10, 2018Hi Esther, Yes, you can close off a window. You will need to remove your current window. Then you will need to install a couple 2 X 4's under the header. Then replace the outside surface (brick, siding, etc.). Then comes insulation. Next, drywall inside the house. Last is tape and mud, sand it when dry. Paint to match current color in your room. Best of luck to you.Helpful Reply
Naomie Moore aka baileyanddaisey, Castaic CA on Jun 10, 2018Sure, how much construction are you up to? Be absolutely certain, and know that it will make the space darker.Helpful Reply
Shore grandmom on Jun 11, 2018Yes, you can, we removed one to put in a gas fireplace. Then we put two small ones on either side of the fireplace.Helpful Reply
