How to choose replacement windows in Calgary, AB

Published on

It can’t be said enough that replacement windows are a sound 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 charm to a room or your home.

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

Terms you’ll likely run in to 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 provide 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 certain that you consider both interior and exterior space when selecting 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 determining the placement of replacement windows for various rooms of your home.

  3. Style. Certain material types might be a better fit for your home and décor in Calgary than others, so make sure to keep this in mind as you check out all of the options available to you.
