How to choose replacement windows in Eau Claire, Wisconsin

We cannot say it enough that replacement windows are a great investment in your home. Not only because they offer you a view to the outside world, but because they may help you be more energy efficient and can add a lot of charm to a room or your home.

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

Terms you’ll likely encounter while researching 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 provide 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. Be sure to think about both interior and exterior space when considering replacement windows so you get the most out of them.

  2. Ventilation. One of the central uses of replacement windows is ventilation, but not all areas of your home require ventilation so keep this in mind when planning out the placement of replacement windows for various rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Some material types could be better suited for your home and décor in Eau Claire than others, so be sure to keep this in mind as you look at all of the choices available to you.
Of course there are a variety of other factors that will be considered in your decision regarding replacement windows, but these are a handful to get you on the right track.
