How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in South Burlington, VT

Published on

We can’t reiterate it enough that replacement windows are a sound investment in your home. Not only because they provide you with a view to the outside world, but because they could help you be more energy efficient and can bring a lot of charm to a room or your home.

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

Things you’ll likely run in to while searching for replacement windows: 

  • Sash: the frame that holds the glass and is moveable 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 think about:

  1. Placement. Depending on the window style, you’ll have to account for different space needs depending on how they move. Be sure to 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 areas of your home need to have ventilation so keep this in mind when planning out the placement of replacement windows for the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Certain material types might be better suited for your home and décor in South Burlington than others, so make certain to keep this in mind as you peruse all of the options available to you.
Of course there are a host of other factors that will be considered in your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a handful to start you on the right track.
