How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Bloomington, IL

Published on

It can’t be said 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 may 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 realize when trying to determine 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 offer a traditional look.

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

What to think about:

  1. Placement. Different window styles have different space needs depending on their movements. Make sure to consider both interior and exterior space when selecting replacement windows so you get the most out of them.

  2. Ventilation. One of the central uses of replacement windows is ventilation, but not all areas of your home need to have ventilation so keep this in mind when determining the placement of replacement windows for the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types could be a better choice for your home and décor in Bloomington than others, so make certain to keep this in mind as you look at all of the options available to you.
Of course there are a host of other factors that will be a part of your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to get you on the right track.
