Replacement Windows In Tucson, AZ Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Historic homes in the Tucson area offer homeowners so many unique and interesting benefits that many new homes simply can’t provide nowadays. Not only do they offer a backstory about the area and period in which they were constructed, they also allow you to utilize a number of style choices that can look 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 fit the bill of your home’s unique, historic charm. So what should you look at when you run in to 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 uncover the type of material used – this is mostly wood for historic homes, so do a little research to read more about the period and the materials most commonly used in the area.

  4. Work to identify 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 thinking about all of these things, do as much research as you can on the year the house was constructed and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Tucson have their own style and features that make them identifiable as being from the area. The last thing you want to happen is to eliminate those charms when you’re getting replacement windows.
