Replacement Windows In Baltimore, MD Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Baltimore area offer homeowners so many special and interesting perks that many new homes simply can’t deliver on nowadays. Not only do they tell a story about the area and period in which they were built, they also allow you to tap in to a host of style options that can feel out of place in a newer home. Of course when it’s time for replacement windows, there’s a chance you could uncover this dilemma. Many new replacement windows don’t fit the bill of your home’s unique, historic charm. So what should you look at when you encounter this situation?

  1. Figure out the size of the window opening.

  2. Write down the number of panes and their arrangement.

  3. Try to reveal the type of material used – this is mostly wood for historic homes, so do a little research to find out more about the period and the materials most commonly used in the area.

  4. Attempt to determine the stain or paint color for matching purposes.

  5. Write down any distinctive identifiers that appear to be unique to that specific window so that you can account for them when chatting with the replacement windows team at Pella Windows and Doors. 

In addition to taking all of these things in to consideration, do as much research as you can on the year the house was constructed and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Baltimore have their own style and characteristics that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to get rid of those charms when simply getting replacement windows.
