How to choose replacement windows in Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Published on

We cannot say it 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 bring a lot of character to a room or your home.

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

Things you’ll likely run in to 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 consider:

  1. Placement. Different window styles have different space needs depending on their movements. Make certain that you consider both interior and exterior space when considering 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. Certain material types may be a better choice for your home and décor in Cape Cod than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you check out all of the choices available to you.
