How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Springfield, IL

Published on

We cannot say it enough that replacement windows are a sound investment in your home. Not only because they offer you a view to the outside world, but because they could help you be more energy efficient and can add a lot of charm to a room or your home.

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

Terms you’ll likely hear while looking for 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. Make sure to consider both interior and exterior space when considering 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 spaces of your home require ventilation so keep this in mind when planning out the placement of replacement windows for various rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Particular material types might be better suited for your home and décor in Springfield than others, so make certain to keep this in mind as you check out all of the choices available to you.
Of course there are a number of other factors that will be considered in your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to get you started.
