How to choose replacement windows in St. Paul, MN

We cannot say it enough that replacement windows are a great investment in your home. Not only because they give you a view to the outside world, but because they can 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 few things that you need to know when trying to determine which replacement windows are perfect for you, your home, and your budget.

Words you’ll likely run in to while searching 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. 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 main uses of replacement windows is ventilation, but not all rooms of your home require ventilation so keep this in mind when determining the placement of replacement windows for the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types might be a better fit for your home and décor in St. Paul than others, so be sure to keep this in mind as you peruse all of the windows available to you.
