How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Petoskey, MI

Published on

It can’t be said enough that replacement windows are a sound 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 add a lot of appeal to a room or your home.

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

Things you’ll likely hear while looking for replacement windows: 

  • Sash: the frame that holds the glass and is moveable for functionality.

  • Muntins: the strips of wood or metal that divide light and offer a traditional look.

  • Mull: when two or more replacement windows are joined together.

What to consider:

  1. Placement. Which window style you choose will determine its space needs based on how it moves. 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 key uses of replacement windows is ventilation, but not all rooms of your home require ventilation so keep this in mind when planning out the placement of replacement windows for all of the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Certain material types could be a better choice for your home and décor in Petoskey than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you look at all of the choices available to you.
