Replacement Windows In Woburn, MA Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Woburn area offer homeowners so many special and interesting bonuses that many new homes simply can’t provide nowadays. Not only do they provide a backstory about the area and period in which they were crafted, they also allow you to utilize a number of style options that can look out of place in a newer home. Of course when the time comes for replacement windows, there’s a probability you could encounter this dilemma. Many new replacement windows don’t mesh with your home’s unique, historic charm. So what should you look at when you encounter this situation?

  1. Figure out the size of the window opening.

  2. Write down the number of panes and their arrangement.

  3. Try to identify the type of material used – this is usually wood for historic homes, so do a little research to find out more about the period and the materials most often used in the area.

  4. Try to uncover 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 account for them when meeting 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 period in which the house was built and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Woburn have their own style and unique designs that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to get rid of those charms when you’re only getting replacement windows.
