How to choose replacement windows in Albany, NY

It can’t be said enough that replacement windows are a wise investment in your home. Not only because they offer you a view to the outside world, but because they can help you be more energy efficient and can offer a lot of appeal to a room or your home.

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

Words you’ll likely run in to while looking for replacement windows: 

  • Sash: the frame that holds the glass and is moveable 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 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 consider both interior and exterior space when choosing 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 spaces of your home need to have ventilation so keep this in mind when planning out the placement of replacement windows for all of the rooms of your home.

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