How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Minneapolis, MN

Published on

We cannot say 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 could 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 few things that you need to understand when trying to determine which replacement windows are ideal for you, your home, and your budget.

Terms you’ll likely encounter while researching replacement windows: 

  • Sash: the frame that holds the glass and can be moved 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 ponder:

  1. Placement. Depending on the window style, you’ll have to account for different space needs depending on how they move. Be sure to 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 rooms of your home need to have ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for all of the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Particular material types could be a better fit for your home and décor in Minneapolis than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you check out all of the choices available to you.
