New Construction Windows and what’s Right for Your Project

When you go shopping for new construction windows for your new build or your renovation project, you may become overwhelmed by the many window options that are offered.

Whether you are creating the home improvement project of your dreams or adding a new wing to your existing home, having the right windows is important and you should be aware about how to identify the best options for your specific project. Taking a passing glance at certain examples is not enough because selecting the right windows is a deeper, more thoughtful, experience.

New Construction Windows and what’s Right for Your Project

At Northeast Architectural, we will help you choose the right materials and can help you determine where windows should be placed in the home if the client desires. Windows are not only important to the structure of a home but can create a more energy-efficient and safer home if windows are properly implemented.

What materials will work best for your project?

If you’re a homeowner who doesn’t mind limited colors, vinyl windows are a cost-effective approach with a modern and luxurious look. The limited color selections can reduce different stylistic options when compared to more expensive wood windows. Wood windows will add a timeless appearance that will create value in a home in the long run. Fiberglass windows are low maintenance and energy efficient and do cost more than vinyl windows but they don’t allow air to enter which can be worth the investment.

For large window openings, aluminum materials are great with their excellent strength as long as the internal components are correctly installed. Composite wood windows are a great option because of the feel of real wood, the low maintenance of vinyl, and the strength of metal. When compared to more traditional materials, composite wood requires a larger initial investment because of the advanced technology required to make the materials.

Plan ahead for placement

While you’re searching for new construction windows, it’s smart to consider where the windows are going to be placed in the house. One factor to consider regardless of what type of window you are purchasing is where the afternoon sunlight hits different areas of your home.

You may not want to install large windows in a room that gets a ton of sunlight, especially if you live in a hot climate. If you are using multiple windows in a particular room, it is important to understand where each one should be placed based on stylistic and environmental factors. Where windows are placed is the final decision of the homeowner, but our team at Northeast Architectural can assist with questions about fenestration, structural requirements, and the overall environment of the room.

Be sure to consider your overall style

One issue all homeowners want to avoid is throwing off the style of a room because your new construction windows don’t fit in with what’s there. From single-hung windows to casement windows, you want to keep in mind what kind of functionality you would like the room and the window styles to offer.

For example, a kitchen should not have the same style of windows as the dining room because different rooms have their own environment. By creating a contrast between each room, you can set the mood and overall vibe, allowing a better feeling when relaxing and enjoying yourself in your home.

Although each homeowner is free to choose the windows and doors they please, you can do the value of your home some big favors by making the right style choices, letting in the natural light from outside, and giving each room in the home a feeling all its own.

Making the final decisions for your home

After careful consideration about building a new home, your new construction windows should be installed without hesitation. Your choices for your replacement windows are based on your own preferences and at the end of the day that’s all that matters. If your choice of windows are effective and efficient, your home should stay in style for as long as you live there!
