Replacement Windows In Charlotte, North Carolina Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Charlotte area offer homeowners so many special and interesting benefits that many new homes simply can’t offer nowadays. Not only do they offer a backstory about the area and period in which they were constructed, they also allow you to tap in to a host of style selections that can look out of place in a newer home. Of course when you need to look for replacement windows, there’s a possibility you could encounter this dilemma. Many new replacement windows don’t match up with your home’s unique, historic charm. So what should you look at when you run in to this situation?

  1. Determine the size of the window opening.

  2. Note the number of panes and their configuration.

  3. Try to identify the type of material used – this is usually wood for historic homes, so do a bit of research to learn more about the period and the materials most often used in the area.

  4. Try to uncover the stain or paint color for matching purposes.

  5. Write down any distinctive identifiers that appear to be unique to that specific window so that you can reference them when meeting with the replacement windows team at Pella Windows and Doors. 

In addition to thinking about 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 Charlotte have their own style and characteristics that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to lose those charms when you’re only getting replacement windows.
