How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Wilmington, North Carolina

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 can help you be more energy efficient and can add a lot of character to a room or your home.

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

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

  • Sash: the frame that holds the glass and has the ability to move 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. Depending on the window style, you’ll have to account for different space needs depending on how they move. Make certain that you 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 require ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Particular material types may be a better choice for your home and décor in Wilmington than others, so make certain to keep this in mind as you peruse all of the windows available to you.
Of course there are a number of other factors that will be a part of your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a handful to get you started.
