How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Grand Rapids, MI

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 can 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 know when trying to decide which replacement windows are perfect for you, your home, and your budget.

Words you’ll likely encounter 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 ponder:

  1. Placement. Depending on the window style, you’ll have to account for different space needs depending on how they move. Make certain that you think about both interior and exterior space when considering 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 must have ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Particular material types might be better suited for your home and décor in Grand Rapids than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you peruse all of the options available to you.
Of course there are a number of other factors that will be a part of your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to start you on the right track.
