Replacement Windows In Salt Lake City, UT Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Salt Lake City area offer homeowners so many special and interesting benefits that many new homes simply can’t offer nowadays. Not only do they provide a backstory about the area and period in which they were constructed, they also allow you to tap in to a host of style selections that can seem out of place in a newer home. Of course when it’s time 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 find yourself in this situation?

  1. Determine the size of the window opening.

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

  3. Try to identify the type of material used – this is usually wood for historic homes, so do a little 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 mention 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 Salt Lake City have their own style and unique designs that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to eliminate those charms when simply getting replacement windows.
