Replacement Windows In Baton Rouge, Louisiana Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Baton Rouge area offer homeowners so many special and interesting benefits that many new homes simply can’t provide nowadays. Not only do they tell a story about the area and period in which they were built, they also allow you to tap in to a host of style choices that can feel out of place in a newer home. Of course when the time comes for replacement windows, there’s a possibility you could uncover this dilemma. Many new replacement windows don’t fit the bill of your home’s unique, historic charm. So what should you look at when you find yourself in this situation?

  1. Figure out the size of the window opening.

  2. Jot down the number of panes and their configuration.

  3. Try to uncover the type of material used – this is most typically wood for historic homes, so do some research to read more about the period and the materials most commonly used in the area.

  4. Work to identify the stain or paint color for matching purposes.

  5. Write down any distinct facts that appear to be unique to that specific window so that you can account for 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 of the house and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Baton Rouge have their own style and features that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to eliminate those charms when you’re only getting replacement windows.
