How to choose replacement windows in Rochester, Minnesota

It can’t be said enough that replacement windows are a sound 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 add a lot of appeal to a room or your home.

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

Words you’ll likely encounter 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 think about:

  1. Placement. Depending on the window style, you’ll have to account for different space needs depending on how they move. Be sure to remember both interior and exterior space when considering 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 require 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 better suited for your home and décor in Rochester than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you look at all of the options available to you.
Of course there are a number of other factors that will be a part of your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a few to get you started.
