How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Southern Pines, NC

Published on

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

All that being said, there are a handful of things that you need to know when trying to determine which replacement windows are perfect for you, your home, and your budget.

Terms you’ll likely run in to while researching 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 think about:

  1. Placement. Depending on the window style, you’ll have to account for different space needs depending on how they move. Be sure to consider both interior and exterior space when choosing replacement windows so you get the most out of them.

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

  3. Style. Some material types could be a better choice for your home and décor in Southern Pines than others, so make certain to keep this in mind as you check out all of the windows available to you.
