How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Asheville, NC

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 may help you be more energy efficient and can offer a lot of appeal to a room or your home.

All that being said, there are a couple things that you need to realize when trying to decipher which replacement windows are ideal for you, your home, and your budget.

Things you’ll likely encounter while looking 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 think about:

  1. Placement. Which window style you choose will determine its space needs based on how it moves. Make certain that you remember both interior and exterior space when choosing 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 must have ventilation so keep this in mind when planning out the placement of replacement windows for various rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types might be a better fit for your home and décor in Asheville than others, so be sure to keep this in mind as you look at all of the choices 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 few to get you started.
