Replacement Windows In Denver, Colorado Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Denver area offer homeowners so many unique and interesting perks 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 number of style options that can seem out of place in a newer home. Of course when the time comes for replacement windows, there’s a chance 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 encounter this situation?

  1. Decipher the size of the window opening.

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

  3. Try to uncover the type of material used – this is most typically wood for historic homes, so do a little research to learn 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 details that appear to be unique to that specific window so that you can mention them when talking with the replacement windows team at Pella Windows and Doors. 

In addition to accounting for all of these things, do as much research as you can on the year the house was constructed and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Denver have their own style and unique designs 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 getting replacement windows.
