How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Traverse City, MI

Published on

We can’t reiterate it enough that replacement windows are a sound 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 appeal 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.

Words you’ll likely encounter while searching 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 consider:

  1. Placement. Depending on the window style, you’ll have to account for different space needs depending on how they move. Make sure to remember both interior and exterior space when selecting 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 deciding the placement of replacement windows for the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types may be better suited for your home and décor in Traverse City than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you look at all of the options available to you.
Of course there are a variety of other factors that will be a part of your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to get you on the right track.
