Replacement Windows In Asheville, NC Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Asheville area offer homeowners so many distinctive and interesting bonuses that many new homes simply can’t offer nowadays. Not only do they offer a backstory about the area and period in which they were constructed, they also allow you to use a host of style selections that can look out of place in a newer home. Of course when you need to look for replacement windows, there’s a probability you could encounter this dilemma. Many new replacement windows don’t match up with your home’s unique, historic charm. So what should you look at when you encounter this situation?

  1. Decipher the size of the window opening.

  2. Jot down the number of panes and their configuration.

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

  4. Work to identify the stain or paint color for matching purposes.

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

In addition to thinking about all of these things, 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 Asheville have their own style and characteristics that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to lose those charms when you’re getting replacement windows.
