How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Greensboro, North Carolina

Published on

We can’t reiterate it enough that replacement windows are a wise 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 offer a lot of appeal to a room or your home.

All that being said, there are a couple things that you need to understand when trying to decide 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 offer 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 sure to remember 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 spaces of your home need to have ventilation so keep this in mind when determining the placement of replacement windows for the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Certain material types could be better suited for your home and décor in Greensboro than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you peruse all of the windows available to you.
