How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Colorado Springs, CO

Published on

We cannot say it 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 could 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 handful of things that you need to realize when trying to decipher which replacement windows are perfect for you, your home, and your budget.

Terms you’ll likely hear 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 remember both interior and exterior space when choosing 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 spaces of your home require ventilation so keep this in mind when planning out the placement of replacement windows for various rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types may be a better fit for your home and décor in Colorado Springs than others, so make certain to keep this in mind as you peruse all of the choices available to you.
