How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Falls Church, VA

Published on

It can’t be said enough that replacement windows are a wise investment in your home. Not only because they give you a view to the outside world, but because they may 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 couple things that you need to understand when trying to determine which replacement windows are ideal for you, your home, and your budget.

Things you’ll likely run in to 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 consider:

  1. Placement. Different window styles have different space needs depending on their movements. 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 main uses of replacement windows is ventilation, but not all rooms of your home must have ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for all of the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types may be a better fit for your home and décor in Falls Church than others, so be sure to keep this in mind as you look at all of the options available to you.
Of course there are a variety of other factors that will be considered in your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to get you started.
