Replacement Windows In Winston-Salem, North Carolina Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Winston-Salem area offer homeowners so many special and interesting bonuses that many new homes simply can’t offer nowadays. Not only do they tell a story about the area and period in which they were constructed, they also allow you to tap in to a host of style options that can feel out of place in a newer home. Of course when you need to look for replacement windows, there’s a possibility you could run in to a dilemma. Many new replacement windows don’t match up with your home’s unique, historic charm. So what should you look at when you find yourself in this situation?

  1. Figure out the size of the window opening.

  2. Jot down the number of panes and how they are arranged.

  3. Try to reveal the type of material used – this is usually wood for historic homes, so do a little research to learn more about the period and the materials most often used in the area.

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

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

In addition to taking all of these things in to consideration, do as much research as you can on the period of the house and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Winston-Salem have their own style and features that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to get rid of those charms when you’re only getting replacement windows.
