Replacement Windows In Ketchum, ID Historic Homes: What You Need to Consider

Published on

Historic homes in the Ketchum area offer homeowners so many special and interesting bonuses that many new homes simply can’t provide nowadays. Not only do they tell a story about the area and period in which they were constructed, they also allow you to tap in to a variety 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 fit the bill of 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. Jot down the number of panes and their configuration.

  3. Try to uncover the type of material used – this is most typically wood for historic homes, so do a bit of research to read more about the period and the materials most often 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 meeting 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 year the house was constructed and the houses in the area. Historical homes like those in Ketchum 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 lose those charms when simply getting replacement windows.
