How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Greenfield, MA

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 appeal to a room or your home.

All that being said, there are a couple things that you need to know when trying to decipher which replacement windows are perfect 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 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. Which window style you choose will determine its space needs based on how it moves. Be sure to think about both interior and exterior space when choosing 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 areas 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. Certain material types may be better suited for your home and décor in Greenfield than others, so make certain to keep this in mind as you check out all of the options available to you.
Of course there are a host of other factors that will be a part of your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a couple to get you started.
