How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Shrewsbury, MA

Published on

We can’t reiterate it enough that replacement windows are a wise investment in your home. Not only because they offer you a view to the outside world, but because they may help you be more energy efficient and can offer 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 searching 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 offer a traditional look.

  • Mull: when two or more replacement windows are joined together.

What to think about:

  1. Placement. Different window styles have different space needs depending on their movements. Make sure to think about 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 rooms of your home need to have ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for all of the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types could be a better fit for your home and décor in Shrewsbury than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you peruse all of the windows available to you.
Of course there are a variety of other factors that will be a part of your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to get you on the right track.
