How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Baltimore, MD

Published on

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

All that being said, there are a couple things that you need to understand when trying to determine which replacement windows are perfect 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 has the ability to move for functionality.

  • Muntins: the strips of wood or metal that divide light and offer a traditional look.

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

What to ponder:

  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 main uses of replacement windows is ventilation, but not all areas of your home require ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for various rooms of your home.

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