Replacement Windows In Memphis, Tennessee Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Memphis area offer homeowners so many distinctive and interesting perks that many new homes simply can’t offer 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 number of style options that can seem out of place in a newer home. Of course when it’s time for replacement windows, there’s a probability you could uncover this dilemma. Many new replacement windows don’t mesh with your home’s unique, historic charm. So what should you look at when you encounter this situation?

  1. Figure out the size of the window opening.

  2. Jot down the number of panes and their configuration.

  3. Try to uncover the type of material used – this is mostly wood for historic homes, so do some research to find out more about the period and the materials typically used in the area.

  4. Try to uncover 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 thinking about all of these things, do as much research as you can on the period of the house and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Memphis have their own style and characteristics that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to eliminate those charms when you’re getting replacement windows.
