Replacement Windows In Annapolis, Maryland Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Annapolis area offer homeowners so many distinctive and interesting benefits that many new homes simply can’t provide nowadays. Not only do they offer a backstory about the area and period in which they were constructed, they also allow you to use a host of style choices that can seem out of place in a newer home. Of course when you need to look for replacement windows, there’s a probability you could run in to a dilemma. Many new replacement windows don’t fit the bill of your home’s unique, historic charm. So what should you look at when you run in to this situation?

  1. Determine the size of the window opening.

  2. Note the number of panes and their configuration.

  3. Try to reveal the type of material used – this is usually wood for historic homes, so do a bit of research to find out more about the period and the materials typically used in the area.

  4. Attempt to determine the stain or paint color for matching purposes.

  5. Write down any distinctive identifiers that appear to be unique to that specific window so that you can mention them when meeting with the replacement windows team at Pella Windows and Doors. 

In addition to thinking about all of these things, do as much research as you can on the period in which the house was built and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Annapolis have their own style and characteristics that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to lose those charms when simply getting replacement windows.
