homes in the Raleigh area offer homeowners so many special
and interesting perks that many new homes simply can’t deliver
on nowadays. Not only do they offer a
backstory about the area and period in which they were built,
they also allow you to use a host
of style choices that can seem out of
place in a newer home. Of course when the time comes for replacement
windows, there’s a probability
you could uncover this dilemma. Many new replacement
windows don’t fit the bill of your home’s unique,
historic charm. So what should you look at when you encounter this situation?
- Determine the size of the window opening.
- Write down the number of panes and how they are arranged.
- Try to uncover
the type of material used – this is usually wood
for historic homes, so do some research to find
out more about the period and the materials typically used in the area.
- Try to uncover the stain or paint color for
- Write down
any distinctive identifiers that appear to be
unique to that specific window so that you can reference
them when chatting with the replacement windows team at
Pella Windows and Doors.
to accounting for all of these things, do as much research as you can
on the year the house
was constructed and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in
Raleigh have their own style and features that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing
you want to happen is to get rid of those charms when simply getting replacement windows.
