How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Hunt Valley, MD

Published on

It can’t be said enough that replacement windows are a great investment in your home. Not only because they offer you a view to the outside world, but because they could 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 few things that you need to realize when trying to decide which replacement windows are ideal for you, your home, and your budget.

Terms you’ll likely hear while looking 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 give you a traditional look.

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

What to ponder:

  1. Placement. Different window styles have different space needs depending on their movements. Make certain that you remember both interior and exterior space when choosing replacement windows so you get the most out of them.

  2. Ventilation. One of the main 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. Particular material types might be a better fit for your home and décor in Hunt Valley than others, so be sure to keep this in mind as you look at all of the choices available to you.
