How to choose replacement windows in Northern Virginia, VA

It can’t be said enough that replacement windows are a great investment in your home. Not only because they give you a view to the outside world, but because they can 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 few things that you need to realize when trying to determine which replacement windows are perfect 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 give you a traditional look.

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

What to think about:

  1. Placement. Depending on the window style, you’ll have to account for different space needs depending on how they move. Make certain that you 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 areas 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. Certain material types might be better suited for your home and décor in Northern Virginia than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you look at all of the choices available to you.
Of course there are a host of other factors that will be considered in your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a handful to get you on the right track.
