How to choose replacement windows in Roanoke, Virginia

Published on

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

All that being said, there are a handful of things that you need to understand when trying to decide which replacement windows are perfect for you, your home, and your budget.

Words 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 provide 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 certain that you remember 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 determining the placement of replacement windows for all of the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types might be a better choice for your home and décor in Roanoke than others, so be sure to keep this in mind as you check out all of the choices available to you.
