Homes are simply not complete without the right windows. While choosing the best materials (such as composite or vinyl replacement windows) and colors are perhaps the most important parts of a replacement, you should also pay careful attention to their placement. Where you install your windows is just as important as the style and design.——————————————– CONTINUE READING ——————————————–Unfortunately, not many homeowners know the first thing about proper window replacement – let alone how to position them correctly around their home. Here are a few tips to help.Mind the SunSolar heat gain can play a big role in your energy efficiency, and windows are by far the number one source of this problem. Choose the position of your replacement windows so that you can maximize the heat from the sun when it is absolutely needed. For example, choose east-facing windows for bedrooms to allow you to wake up with sunlight and west-facing windows in living areas to let them cool down during the times when they are most used.Sticking to TraditionThere are two schools of thought when it comes to sticking to design tradition. One recommends finding designs and patterns that blend seamlessly with the existing architectural style of your home while the other advocates the opposite. Consult with your home improvement designer on whether or not sticking to your current style might work for your new windows.Prioritise SafetyCertain windows like egress window replacements are a requirement for some parts of your home. This is especially true for bedrooms and basements which need at least one egress window for safety purposes.
