How to choose replacement windows in Lafayette, IN

It can’t be said enough that replacement windows are a sound investment in your home. Not only because they offer you a view to the outside world, but because they can 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 know when trying to decipher which replacement windows are ideal for you, your home, and your budget.

Things you’ll likely run in to while looking for replacement windows: 

  • Sash: the frame that holds the glass and is moveable 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 consider:

  1. Placement. Depending on the window style, you’ll have to account for different space needs depending on how they move. Be sure to consider 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 must have ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types could be a better fit for your home and décor in Lafayette than others, so be sure to keep this in mind as you look at all of the windows 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 handful to get you started.
