How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Washington DC, DC

Published on

We cannot say it enough that replacement windows are a great investment in your home. Not only because they give you a view to the outside world, but because they could help you be more energy efficient and can bring a lot of appeal to a room or your home.

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

Terms you’ll likely encounter while researching 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 provide a traditional look.

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

What to consider:

  1. Placement. Which window style you choose will determine its space needs based on how it moves. Make certain that you think about both interior and exterior space when considering 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 spaces of your home must have ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for all of the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Certain material types could be a better fit for your home and décor in Washington DC than others, so be sure to keep this in mind as you peruse all of the choices available to you.
