Replacement Windows In Concord, NH Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Historic homes in the Concord area offer homeowners so many special and interesting benefits 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 feel out of place in a newer home. Of course when it’s time for replacement windows, there’s a chance you could uncover this 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. Decipher the size of the window opening.

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

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

  4. Attempt to determine 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 mention them when meeting 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 period of the house and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Concord 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 getting replacement windows.
