How to choose replacement windows in Long Island, NY

We can’t reiterate it enough that replacement windows are a wise 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 add a lot of appeal 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 ideal for you, your home, and your budget.

Things you’ll likely encounter while looking for replacement windows: 

  • Sash: the frame that holds the glass and has the ability to move 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. 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 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 may be a better fit for your home and décor in Long Island than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you check out all of the choices available to you.
