Replacement Windows In Falls Church, VA Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Falls Church area offer homeowners so many unique and interesting benefits that many new homes simply can’t provide nowadays. Not only do they offer a backstory about the area and period in which they were built, they also allow you to tap in to a host of style options that can feel out of place in a newer home. Of course when you need to look for replacement windows, there’s a probability you could uncover this dilemma. Many new replacement windows don’t mesh with your home’s unique, historic charm. So what should you look at when you find yourself in this situation?

  1. Determine the size of the window opening.

  2. Note the number of panes and how they are arranged.

  3. Try to reveal the type of material used – this is usually wood for historic homes, so do a little research to find out more about the period and the materials most often used in the area.

  4. Work to identify the stain or paint color for matching purposes.

  5. Write down any distinctive identifiers that appear to be unique to that specific window so that you can reference them when talking with the replacement windows team at Pella Windows and Doors. 

In addition to taking all of these things in to consideration, do as much research as you can on the year the house was constructed and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Falls Church have their own style and characteristics that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to lose those charms when simply getting replacement windows.
