How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Kalamazoo, MI

Published on

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

Terms 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. Make certain that you remember both interior and exterior space when considering replacement windows so you get the most out of them.

  2. Ventilation. One of the key uses of replacement windows is ventilation, but not all spaces of your home require ventilation so keep this in mind when determining the placement of replacement windows for various rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Particular material types could be better suited for your home and décor in Kalamazoo than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you check out all of the choices available to you.
