Replacement Windows In Nashville, TN Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Nashville area offer homeowners so many special and interesting bonuses 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 built, they also allow you to tap in to a host of style choices that can seem out of place in a newer home. Of course when it’s time for replacement windows, there’s a possibility you could run in to a 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. Determine the size of the window opening.

  2. Write down the number of panes and their arrangement.

  3. Try to reveal the type of material used – this is usually wood for historic homes, so do a bit of research to find out 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 distinctive identifiers 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 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 Nashville have their own style and unique designs that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to eliminate those charms when simply getting replacement windows.
