How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Peoria, IL

Published on

It can’t be said enough that replacement windows are a wise investment in your home. Not only because they provide you with a view to the outside world, but because they could help you be more energy efficient and can bring a lot of appeal to a room or your home.

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

Words 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 offer a traditional look.

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

What to think about:

  1. Placement. Different window styles have different space needs depending on their movements. Be sure to remember both interior and exterior space when choosing 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 need to have ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for various rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types could be better suited for your home and décor in Peoria than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you look at all of the choices available to you.
