How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Newport, Rhode Island

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 bring a lot of appeal 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.

Things you’ll likely run in to while searching for 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 give you 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 think about 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 areas of your home must have ventilation so keep this in mind when planning out the placement of replacement windows for all of the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types could be better suited for your home and décor in Newport than others, so be sure to keep this in mind as you look at all of the options available to you.
Of course there are a variety of other factors that will be a part of your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a couple to start you on the right track.
