How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in South Portland, ME

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 can 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 handful of things that you need to know when trying to determine which replacement windows are ideal for you, your home, and your budget.

Terms you’ll likely hear while searching for replacement windows: 

  • Sash: the frame that holds the glass and can be moved 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. 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 rooms of your home need to have ventilation so keep this in mind when determining the placement of replacement windows for the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Certain material types could be better suited for your home and décor in South Portland than others, so make certain to keep this in mind as you check out all of the windows available to you.
