How to choose replacement windows in Boston, MA

We cannot say it 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 charm to a room or your home.

All that being said, there are a couple things that you need to realize when trying to determine which replacement windows are perfect for you, your home, and your budget.

Words you’ll likely run in to while researching replacement windows: 

  • Sash: the frame that holds the glass and is moveable 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 think about:

  1. Placement. Depending on the window style, you’ll have to account for different space needs depending on how they move. Be sure to consider both interior and exterior space when selecting replacement windows so you get the most out of them.

  2. Ventilation. One of the key uses of replacement windows is ventilation, but not all areas of your home must have ventilation so keep this in mind when planning out the placement of replacement windows for the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Particular material types might be a better choice for your home and décor in Boston than others, so be sure to keep this in mind as you peruse all of the windows 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 handful to get you on the right track.
