Replacement Windows In Kansas City, KS Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Kansas City area offer homeowners so many unique and interesting perks that many new homes simply can’t provide nowadays. Not only do they tell a story about the area and period in which they were crafted, they also allow you to utilize a variety of style selections that can look out of place in a newer home. Of course when you need to look for replacement windows, there’s a possibility 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. Determine the size of the window opening.

  2. Write down the number of panes and their configuration.

  3. Try to uncover the type of material used – this is usually wood for historic homes, so do a bit of research to read more about the period and the materials most often used in the area.

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

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

In addition to taking all of these things in to consideration, do as much research as you can on the period of the house and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Kansas City have their own style and features that make them identifiable as being from the area.
