How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Edmonton, AB

Published on

We cannot say it 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 may 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 few things that you need to understand when trying to decide which replacement windows are right for you, your home, and your budget.

Things you’ll likely encounter while researching 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 ponder:

  1. Placement. Different window styles have different space needs depending on their movements. Make sure to remember 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 require ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for various rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types might be a better choice for your home and décor in Edmonton 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 number of other factors that will be a part of your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a handful to start you on the right track.
