How to choose replacement windows in Gaithersburg, MD

We can’t reiterate it enough that replacement windows are a sound investment in your home. Not only because they give you a view to the outside world, but because they may help you be more energy efficient and can offer a lot of charm to a room or your home.

All that being said, there are a few things that you need to realize when trying to decide which replacement windows are perfect for you, your home, and your budget.

Terms you’ll likely encounter while researching 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 consider:

  1. Placement. Depending on the window style, you’ll have to account for different space needs depending on how they move. Make certain that you remember both interior and exterior space when selecting replacement windows so you get the most out of them.

  2. Ventilation. One of the key uses of replacement windows is ventilation, but not all rooms of your home need to have ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Particular material types may be better suited for your home and décor in Gaithersburg than others, so make certain to keep this in mind as you look at all of the options available to you.
