Retrofit or new build/new construction window installation

6 years ago

We have 3 bathroom windows we want made longer (same width, just longer). Current windows are 24"WX24"L, 36"WX24"L, and 24"WX24"L. We want to change to 24"WX54"L, 36"WX54"L, and 24"WX54"L. Outside of house is stucco. Windows face south and will get a lot of wind and rain. Which is better so that there will be no issues with leaks/air infiltration: retrofit installation or new build/new construction installation? Also, what is the process for each type of installation? Thanks in advance.
