Two major benefits of doing a window replacement this way are:
1) getting down to the rough framing of the window opening allows for the framing itself to be inspected for any damage or other problems
2) all the insulation, caulking, and flashing that seals the window into the opening will be replaced as well, providing a totally fresh start with the new window
1) ‘full frame’ replacement is more costly as a project because of the time and materials involved
2) it is more disruptive in the short term to the home. Deciding which option might be best for your project will likely involve assessing the condition of your current windows (and surrounding trim/framing) as well as considering your budget and design goals
