How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Kansas City, KS

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 few things that you need to realize when trying to decipher which replacement windows are ideal for you, your home, and your budget.

Words 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 provide a traditional look.

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

What to ponder:

  1. Placement. Which window style you choose will determine its space needs based on how it moves. Make sure to think about both interior and exterior space when choosing 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 require ventilation so keep this in mind when determining the placement of replacement windows for various rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Particular material types may be better suited for your home and décor in Kansas City than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you look at all of the windows available to you.
