How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Salt Lake City, UT

Published on

We cannot say it enough that replacement windows are a wise investment in your home. Not only because they provide you with a view to the outside world, but because they could help you be more energy efficient and can offer a lot of character to a room or your home.

All that being said, there are a couple things that you need to realize when trying to decide which replacement windows are perfect for you, your home, and your budget.

Things you’ll likely encounter while researching replacement windows: 

  • Sash: the frame that holds the glass and can be moved 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 think about:

  1. Placement. Different window styles have different space needs depending on their movements. Be sure to think about both interior and exterior space when considering 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 the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types might be a better choice for your home and décor in Salt Lake City than others, so make certain to keep this in mind as you check out all of the options available to you.
Of course there are a host of other factors that will play in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a couple to get you on the right track.
