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?
- Determine the size of the window opening.
- Note the number of panes and their configuration.
- 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.
- Attempt to
determine the stain or paint color for
- 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.
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.
