How to choose replacement windows in Des Moines, IA

Published on

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 could help you be more energy efficient and can bring a lot of appeal to a room or your home.

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

Things you’ll likely hear 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 offer a traditional look.

  • Mull: when two or more replacement windows are joined together.

What to consider:

  1. Placement. Different window styles have different space needs depending on their movements. Make sure to think about both interior and exterior space when selecting 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 areas of your home require ventilation so keep this in mind when planning out the placement of replacement windows for the rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Certain material types could be better suited for your home and décor in Des Moines than others, so make certain to keep this in mind as you look at all of the windows available to you.
