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?

- Note the number of panes and their configuration.

things, do as much research as you can

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.
