Marvin Ultimate/Elevate insert windows:inside or outside installation?

last year

For the mid-Atlantic area, what is the best method for installation? Inside or outside? I prefer not to disturb the inside trim -- not even the inside stop, since it's more than 80 years old and hard to replace if it breaks. Plus, the outside stops are deteriorated and I might as well replace them and cover the gap that will exist between the inserts and the brickmould -- I don't want aluminum capping. Accordingly, I would be more inclined for an outside installation, unless there are reasons to prefer an inside installation.
