It all depends on how large of windows you want to install. We have done them both ways. Sometimes we retrofit windows into the existing frame and leave the chases for the sash weights alone. Other times we remove the frames and the weight chases, and install windows sized to the larger opening. Either way, it's not that tough of a job. The header and sill are sized to allow for the weight chases, so no reframing is involved.
