How to choose replacement windows in Mt. Pleasant, MI

Published on

It can’t be said enough that replacement windows are a great 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 bring a lot of character to a room or your home.

All that being said, there are a handful of things that you need to realize when trying to determine which replacement windows are right for you, your home, and your budget.

Words you’ll likely hear 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 ponder:

  1. Placement. Different window styles have different space needs depending on their movements. Make sure to remember both interior and exterior space when choosing 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 areas of your home must have ventilation so keep this in mind when determining the placement of replacement windows for the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types might be a better fit for your home and décor in Mt. Pleasant than others, so be sure to keep this in mind as you check out all of the options available to you.
