Planning a Home Addition? The Art of Choosing Windows

Over 1,000 homes served in over 40 years of business

Many of the homes in the South Shore area were relatively small when they were first built. As family sizes and lifestyles changed, there’s a need for more space. This often means home additions. First floor additions are built onto a home’s ground floor; where space limitations preclude this option or more room is needed, second or third story options are a popular option.

When choosing windows for your addition, the first step is to consider the existing windows in your home. Are you pleased with their performance? Do you like their appearance? If you’re committed to keeping your existing windows for the foreseeable future, you’ll want to choose windows for your addition in a matching style, or a style that compliments their design.

Consider both the interior and exterior of your home. Wood clad vinyl windows offer an upscale interior appearance while providing the same low-maintenance routine that makes vinyl replacement windows so attractive. If your existing home doesn’t have wood trimmed windows inside, going with vinyl windows throughout the home makes visual sense.
