Published on

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 bring a lot of charm to a room or your home.

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

Things you’ll likely hear while looking 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 offer a traditional look.

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

What to consider:

  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 main uses of replacement windows is ventilation, but not all spaces of your home must have ventilation so keep this in mind when determining the placement of replacement windows for various rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Certain material types may be better suited for your home and décor in Beltsville than others, so make certain to keep this in mind as you check out all of the options available to you.
