How to choose replacement windows in Portsmouth, NH

It can’t be said 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 may help you be more energy efficient and can bring a lot of character to a room or your home.

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

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

  • Sash: the frame that holds the glass and can be moved 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. Different window styles have different space needs depending on their movements. Make sure to think about both interior and exterior space when choosing 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 spaces of your home must have ventilation so keep this in mind when deciding the placement of replacement windows for all of the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types may be better suited for your home and décor in Portsmouth than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you look at all of the windows available to you.
Of course there are a host of other factors that will be a part of your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a handful to get you started.
