Replacement Windows In Shrewsbury, MA Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Shrewsbury area offer homeowners so many distinctive and interesting benefits that many new homes simply can’t deliver on 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 choices that can feel out of place in a newer home. Of course when the time comes for replacement windows, there’s a chance you could encounter this dilemma. Many new replacement windows don’t fit the bill of your home’s unique, historic charm. So what should you look at when you encounter this situation?

  1. Figure out the size of the window opening.

  2. Jot down the number of panes and how they are arranged.

  3. Try to uncover the type of material used – this is usually wood for historic homes, so do a bit of research to read more about the period and the materials most often used in the area.

  4. Try to uncover the stain or paint color for matching purposes.

  5. Write down any distinctive identifiers that appear to be unique to that specific window so that you can reference them when talking with the replacement windows team at Pella Windows and Doors. 

In addition to accounting for all of these things, do as much research as you can on the year the house was constructed and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Shrewsbury have their own style and features that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to get rid of those charms when you’re only getting replacement windows.
