We cannot say 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 could help you be more energy efficient and can bring a lot of charm to a room or your home.

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

Things you’ll likely encounter 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 offer a traditional look.

  • Mull: when two or more replacement windows are joined together.

What to ponder:

  1. Placement. Depending on the window style, you’ll have to account for different space needs depending on how they move. Be sure to think about both interior and exterior space when considering 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 rooms of your home need to have ventilation so keep this in mind when determining the placement of replacement windows for various rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Particular material types might be a better choice for your home and décor in Woburn than others, so make certain to keep this in mind as you peruse all of the windows available to you.
