Replacement Windows In Monroe, CT Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Historic homes in the Monroe area offer homeowners so many distinctive and interesting benefits that many new homes simply can’t deliver on nowadays. Not only do they tell a story about the area and period in which they were crafted, they also allow you to tap in to a host of style options that can feel out of place in a newer home. Of course when it’s time for replacement windows, there’s a probability you could run in to a 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. Determine the size of the window opening.

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

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

  4. Attempt to determine the stain or paint color for matching purposes.

  5. Write down any details 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 taking all of these things in to consideration, 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 Monroe have their own style and unique designs that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to lose those charms when you’re only getting replacement windows.
