Replacement Windows In Norwalk, CT Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Historic homes in the Norwalk area offer homeowners so many unique 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 tap in to a host of style selections that can look out of place in a newer home. Of course when it’s time for replacement windows, there’s a possibility you could uncover this 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?

  1. Figure out the size of the window opening.

  2. Note the number of panes and their configuration.

  3. Try to identify the type of material used – this is usually wood for historic homes, so do a little research to learn more about the period and the materials most commonly used in the area.

  4. Work to identify the stain or paint color for matching purposes.

  5. Write down any distinctive identifiers that appear to be unique to that specific window so that you can reference them when meeting with the replacement windows team at Pella Windows and Doors. 

In addition to taking all of these things in to consideration, 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 Norwalk 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 you’re only getting replacement windows.
