How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Charlotte, North Carolina

Published on

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

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

Words you’ll likely encounter while looking for replacement windows: 

  • Sash: the frame that holds the glass and is moveable 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 consider:

  1. Placement. Which window style you choose will determine its space needs based on how it moves. Be sure to think about both interior and exterior space when choosing replacement windows so you get the most out of them.

  2. Ventilation. One of the key uses of replacement windows is ventilation, but not all rooms 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. Particular material types might be a better fit for your home and décor in Charlotte than others, so be sure to keep this in mind as you look at all of the windows available to you.
Of course there are a variety of other factors that will be considered in your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a couple to start you on the right track.
