Replacement Windows In Mt. Pleasant, MI Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Mt. Pleasant area offer homeowners so many unique and interesting perks that many new homes simply can’t deliver on nowadays. Not only do they tell a story about the area and period in which they were crafted, they also allow you to tap in to a number of style selections 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 run in to a 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. Write down the number of panes and how they are arranged.

  3. Try to uncover the type of material used – this is mostly wood for historic homes, so do a bit of research to find out 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 mention 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 year the house was constructed and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Mt. Pleasant have their own style and characteristics that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to eliminate those charms when simply getting replacement windows.
