How to choose replacement windows in San Antonio, TX

Published on

We cannot say it enough that replacement windows are a great investment in your home. Not only because they provide you with a view to the outside world, but because they could help you be more energy efficient and can offer 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 perfect for you, your home, and your budget.

Terms you’ll likely run in to while researching replacement windows: 

  • Sash: the frame that holds the glass and has the ability to move for functionality.

  • Muntins: the strips of wood or metal that divide light and give you 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 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 must have ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for various rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Certain material types could be better suited for your home and décor in San Antonio than others, so make certain to keep this in mind as you check out all of the choices available to you.
Of course there are a variety of other factors that will be considered in your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a handful to get you started.
