How to Choose Replacement Windows

How to choose replacement windows in Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Published on

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

Words you’ll likely run in to while searching for 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 offer a traditional look.

  • Mull: when two or more replacement windows are joined together.

What to think about:

  1. Placement. Which window style you choose will determine its space needs based on how it moves. Make sure to consider both interior and exterior space when selecting 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 areas of your home must have ventilation so keep this in mind when determining the placement of replacement windows for various rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types might be better suited for your home and décor in Baton Rouge than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you check out all of the windows available to you.
