Window Replacement Strategies to Up Your Home’s Curb Appeal

While there are many ways to enhance your home’s exterior, window replacement rarely gets the recognition it deserves.  This is truly disappointing considering a home’s windows often take up so much of its façade.  Full frame replacement windows can provide a new exterior aesthetic and add personality to a property.  Here are our top strategies for accomplishing this.

Window Style: One of the most commonly misunderstood facts about home window replacement is that if that the new window must have the same style as the previous one.  Many times, it makes sense to update the window style used from a beauty and functionality standpoint.  Bay, bow, and garden windows protrude from the home’s exterior, adding interest.  Homeowners looking for expanded views tend to prefer casement and awning windows.  The sashes on double-hung, sliding, and single-hung windows have the capability to add a burst of color.

Upgrade Your Window Trim: The primary function of window trim is to protect your house windows from air and water infiltration.  However, this doesn’t mean that homeowners can’t get adventurous with window trim in order to inject style on their house’s exterior.  This can include trim that’s a stark contrast to the home’s neutral color siding, but blends in with the property’s gutters and soffits.

Consider Window Grilles: Window grilles separate the glass on the window into panes.  They can be made of wood, vinyl, or metal.  Their purpose is completely decorative.

Experimenting with Glass: There’s no hard and fast rule that stipulates that the glass in house windows must be transparent.  Many homeowners, especially those in historic homes, gravitate towards stained, frosted, or patterned glass to offer a feeling of opulence.

Geometric Windows: Specialty shaped windows come in an assortment of configurations including pentagon, octagon, circle, and half-moon.  They add visual interest to the exterior of a home because of their uniqueness.

Shutters:  Another way to increase your home’s curb appeal is through the installation of shutters.  Those with a pop of color are an easy way to make your home stand out in a positive way.

Window Boxes: Window boxes can also be added just below the sill of the windows at the front of your home.  They can be filled with flowers, plants, and herbs to add an artistic effect.  Window boxes should be situated on lower levels where they can be easily watered from the interior or exterior of your home.

"We are part of an HOA. We had Lindus out to replace the windows in our townhome. They did a great job in the pre-sales, helps us select window design, and delivered the windows as ordered. I was very impressed with the installers. they were very professional, friendly, and showed a great deal of care for both our home and for keeping us safe during this time of COVID. Installation was top notch, the interior and exterior match wonderfully. great craftsmanship.  After having the windows for a number of months now, We really appreciate the quality and the noticeable change in heating and cooling."

"Although Lindus was not the lowest bid, because of their excellent ratings on Angie's List we selected them to do the project. Removing 14 double hung wood windows and two large bay windows (including frames & interior trim), cutting back the exterior siding slightly, replacing with Infinity® from Marvin units and installing new interior trim was a four day project for the crew of three. It is doggone rare to find a company that takes this kind of pride in their work any more, but Lindus definitely does. Would we recommend them? We already have. With pleasure."

"We had Lindus Construction replaced all of the windows on our house with SeasonGuard windows. Not only did they cut down on our heating and air conditioning bills, but we didn't hear much of the thunder and rain storms this summer. Also, the installers are wonderful to work with. I would recommend Lindus to anyone!"
