Is there anything better than an historic home with tons of charm? Whether you’ve recently purchased a hundred-year-old Victorian or you’ve owned a classic Tudor-style treasure for years, your house isn’t just a place to call home, but a work of art. Unfortunately, older homes don’t come without their challenges. If you live in an older home, you may already be familiar with creaky floors, outdated plumbing or electricity, and those dreaded drafty winters. This year, we’re here to help you stay warm all winter long! Here’s how to find the best windows for historic homes.
Replacing Windows in Historic Homes
If you’ve decided it’s time to replace those old windows, make sure to consider all of your options. There are several types of replacement windows (even special shape windows!) that can help you increase efficiency, protect your home from severe weather, and reduce noise while still preserving your home’s classic exterior appearance. The best part? A high-quality window is more affordable than having to constantly replace low-quality windows.
Old windows are notorious for leaking lots of air into the home, which can lead to very chilly winters or pricey heating bills, not to mention the higher cost of air conditioning during the summer weather. Replacement windows eliminate those pesky leaks and save you money at the same time.
When looking for the best windows for historic homes, be sure to consider the following elements:
- The design and material of the window frame
- Assembly options
