Replacement Windows In Scottsdale, AZ Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Scottsdale area offer homeowners so many distinctive and interesting perks that many new homes simply can’t offer nowadays. Not only do they offer a backstory about the area and period in which they were constructed, they also allow you to tap in to a variety of style choices that can look out of place in a newer home. Of course when the time comes for replacement windows, there’s a possibility you could run in to a dilemma. Many new replacement windows don’t match up with your home’s unique, historic charm. So what should you look at when you find yourself in 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 mostly wood for historic homes, so do some research to read 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 distinct facts that appear to be unique to that specific window so that you can reference them when chatting 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 year the house was constructed and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Scottsdale 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.
