How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Raleigh, North Carolina

Published on

We cannot say it enough that replacement windows are a great investment in your home. Not only because they offer you a view to the outside world, but because they may help you be more energy efficient and can add a lot of appeal to a room or your home.

All that being said, there are a couple things that you need to know when trying to decide which replacement windows are right for you, your home, and your budget.

Things you’ll likely run in to while searching for replacement windows: 

  • Sash: the frame that holds the glass and has the ability to move for functionality.

  • Muntins: the strips of wood or metal that divide light and provide a traditional look.

  • Mull: when two or more replacement windows are joined together.

What to ponder:

  1. Placement. Different window styles have different space needs depending on their movements. Make sure to think about both interior and exterior space when selecting replacement windows so you get the most out of them.

  2. Ventilation. One of the main uses of replacement windows is ventilation, but not all spaces of your home need to have ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for all of the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Certain material types could be a better fit for your home and décor in Raleigh than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you peruse all of the options available to you.
Of course there are a number of other factors that will be considered in your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to get you on the right track.
