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 handful of things that you need to understand when trying to decide which replacement windows are right for you, your home, and your budget.

Words you’ll likely encounter while researching 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 provide a traditional look.

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

What to think about:

  1. Placement. Depending on the window style, you’ll have to account for different space needs depending on how they move. Be sure to remember both interior and exterior space when selecting 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 rooms of your home require ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Certain material types may be better suited for your home and décor in North Carolina than others, so be sure to keep this in mind as you check out all of the options available to you.
