Replacement Windows In Edmonton, AB Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

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

  1. Figure out the size of the window opening.

  2. Write down the number of panes and how they are arranged.

  3. Try to uncover the type of material used – this is mostly wood for historic homes, so do some research to learn more about the period and the materials most commonly used in the area.

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

  5. Write down any distinctive identifiers that appear to be unique to that specific window so that you can account for them when talking with the replacement windows team at Pella Windows and Doors. 

In addition to thinking about all of these things, 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 Edmonton have their own style and characteristics that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to get rid of those charms when you’re only getting replacement windows.
