Replacement Windows In Hanover, MA Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Hanover area offer homeowners so many distinctive and interesting benefits that many new homes simply can’t deliver on nowadays. Not only do they offer a backstory about the area and period in which they were constructed, they also allow you to utilize a variety 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 encounter this dilemma. Many new replacement windows don’t mesh with your home’s unique, historic charm. So what should you look at when you run in to this situation?

  1. Determine the size of the window opening.

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

  3. Try to identify the type of material used – this is most typically wood for historic homes, so do a bit of research to learn 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 mention them when meeting 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 Hanover 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 you’re only getting replacement windows.
