Replacement Windows In Jackson, WY Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Jackson area offer homeowners so many distinctive and interesting bonuses that many new homes simply can’t provide nowadays. Not only do they provide a backstory about the area and period in which they were crafted, they also allow you to use a variety of style choices that can feel out of place in a newer home. Of course when you need to look for replacement windows, there’s a chance you could run in to a dilemma. Many new replacement windows don’t mesh with your home’s unique, historic charm. So what should you look at when you find yourself in this situation?

  1. Decipher the size of the window opening.

  2. Note the number of panes and how they are arranged.

  3. Try to identify the type of material used – this is mostly wood for historic homes, so do a little research to read more about the period and the materials most commonly 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 reference 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 Jackson 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 simply getting replacement windows.
