How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Hanover, MA

Published on

We can’t reiterate it enough that replacement windows are a wise investment in your home. Not only because they offer you a view to the outside world, but because they may help you be more energy efficient and can offer a lot of charm to a room or your home.

All that being said, there are a few 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 encounter while researching replacement windows: 

  • Sash: the frame that holds the glass and is moveable 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 consider both interior and exterior space when choosing 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 areas 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. Particular material types may be a better fit for your home and décor in Hanover than others, so be sure to keep this in mind as you peruse all of the windows available to you.
Of course there are a number of other factors that will play in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to start you on the right track.
