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

Published on

Historic homes in the Haverhill area offer homeowners so many unique 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 built, they also allow you to utilize a number of style choices that can feel out of place in a newer home. Of course when it’s time 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 run in to this situation?

  1. Figure out the size of the window opening.

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

  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 most often used in the area.

  4. Work to identify the stain or paint color for matching purposes.

  5. Write down any details that appear to be unique to that specific window so that you can mention them when chatting with the replacement windows team at Pella Windows and Doors. 

In addition to thinking about 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 Haverhill 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 get rid of those charms when you’re getting replacement windows.
