Replacement Windows In Cape Cod, Massachusetts Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Cape Cod area offer homeowners so many special and interesting bonuses that many new homes simply can’t offer nowadays. Not only do they offer a backstory about the area and period in which they were crafted, they also allow you to tap in to a number of style options that can look out of place in a newer home. Of course when the time comes for replacement windows, there’s a probability you could uncover this dilemma. Many new replacement windows don’t fit the bill of your home’s unique, historic charm. So what should you look at when you encounter this situation?

  1. Decipher 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 most typically wood for historic homes, so do a little research to read more about the period and the materials typically used in the area.

  4. Attempt to determine the stain or paint color for matching purposes.

  5. Write down any details that appear to be unique to that specific window so that you can account for them when chatting 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 period in which the house was built and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Cape Cod have their own style and features that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to eliminate those charms when you’re getting replacement windows.
