Replacement Windows In Fall River, MA Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Fall River area offer homeowners so many unique 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 constructed, they also allow you to tap in to a host of style options that can seem out of place in a newer home. Of course when you need to look for replacement windows, there’s a possibility you could encounter this dilemma. Many new replacement windows don’t fit the bill of 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. Write down 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 learn more about the period and the materials most commonly 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 reference them when talking 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 period of the house and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Fall River have their own style and characteristics that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to lose those charms when you’re getting replacement windows.
