How to choose replacement windows in Syracuse, NY

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 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 know when trying to decide which replacement windows are ideal for you, your home, and your budget.

Terms you’ll likely hear while looking for 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 offer 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 considering replacement windows so you get the most out of them.

  2. Ventilation. One of the central uses of replacement windows is ventilation, but not all rooms 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. Certain material types could be better suited for your home and décor in Syracuse than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you look at all of the windows available to you.
Of course there are a variety of other factors that will be a part of your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a handful to get you started.
