How to choose replacement windows in Plattsburgh, NY

We cannot say it enough that replacement windows are a great investment in your home. Not only because they provide you with a view to the outside world, but because they can help you be more energy efficient and can offer 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 determine which replacement windows are right for you, your home, and your budget.

Things you’ll likely run in to 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 considering replacement windows so you get the most out of them.

  2. Ventilation. One of the main uses of replacement windows is ventilation, but not all spaces of your home must have ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Certain material types could be a better choice for your home and décor in Plattsburgh than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you peruse all of the options available to you.
Of course there are a number of other factors that will play in to your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a couple to get you started.
