By fiderioandsons May 16, 2017

From size and shape to material and construction, there are endless variations of CT replacement windows on the market today. While the selection makes choosing windows fun, it can also be overwhelming. How can you make sure you’re getting the right ones?

At Fiderio & Sons, we’ve been in the CT window replacement business since 1984, and we’ve helped thousands of local homeowners make challenging but exciting window choices. To help you make yours, take a look at our list of five things to consider for your replacement windows.

How to Choose the Right Replacement Windows for Your Connecticut Home

While you can simply replace existing windows with replacement windows of the same type, there is also the opportunity to select a new style or product that accommodates added functionality in your home. To make sure your CT window replacement meets your needs, consider the following five aspects.

1. Layout

The first thing that should guide your window selection is the room’s layout. For example, rooms with expansive wall space benefit most from a large picture or bow window, while rooms next to highly trafficked walkways often require a non-swinging window such double hung windows. Gathering areas such as kitchens, living rooms and dining rooms may benefit from an upgrade to a patio door for easy access to outdoor space. Your room’s physical layout is the best way to start narrowing down your choice.

2. Aesthetic

Windows are unique because they impact both the interior and exterior aesthetic of your home. For a renovation that’s seamless and stylish, pick windows that complement your interior décor as well as your home’s architectural style. If you have a Victorian-style home, for example, you probably shouldn’t go for ultra-modern trapezoidal windows.

3. Purpose

Although you definitely want great style, you should also consider the primary purpose of your CT replacement windows. Will they be used for ventilation? Are you looking to maximize your view? Will they be opened and closed frequently? Will they be placed in an easy- or hard-to-reach place? The answers to these questions will point to the most convenient opening mechanism (like sliding, cranking, or swinging) or stationary decorative windows that don’t need to open.

4. Orientation

Similar to the room’s physical layout, it’s important to think about its directional orientation. A family room facing west, for instance, might let in too much sun, making it uncomfortable to use around sunset. Think about your family’s daily routine and then choose a window that allows an appropriate amount of natural light and ventilation.

5. Cost

Last but certainly not least, consider both short- and long-term costs. Short-term costs include the price of the windows themselves as well as labor, while long-term costs include savings from.

  • Lower heating and cooling bills
  • Longer window lifespans
  • Reduced maintenance needs (like painting or sanding)
  • Protective warranties

By keeping these five tips in mind, you’re ready to choose the perfect windows for your Connecticut home!
