How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Monroe, CT

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

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

Things you’ll likely hear 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 provide 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. Be sure to think about both interior and exterior space when selecting 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 require ventilation so keep this in mind when planning out the placement of replacement windows for all of the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types may be a better fit for your home and décor in Monroe than others, so make certain to keep this in mind as you look at all of the windows available to you.
