Historic Homeowners: You Can Still Enjoy the Benefits of Modern Windows

If you own an historic home in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area, you’ve probably already encountered a lot of restrictions and rules as you renovate and remodel your property.  Yes, an historic home has the potential to be a frustrating money pit, and despite its charm and traditional appeal, an older home has a lot of drawbacks, including lack of energy efficiency.  Historic and older homes were not constructed according to today’s energy-conservation techniques, and most of these homes are drafty and require a substantial amount of heating and cooling to make them comfortable.

Often the exterior building components most in need of replacement in older and historic homes  are windows and doors.  You may find the look and convenience of modern low-maintenance replacement windows appealing, but how do you get what you want, cut your energy bill, and still maintain the look of your home and satisfy the requirements of your historic district?   That’s where the replacement window professionals at Window Outfitters come in.  As THE replacement window company in the Twin Cities, Window Outfitters specializes in windows and doors for historic and older homes.  Windows and exterior entry doors are available from companies such as Pella which replicate the look of the original windows but incorporate modern high-tech window technology.  You CAN have energy-efficient, easy-to-maintain windows as well as the old-world traditional look you fell in love with.  Pella hasn’t overlooked the important details, either.  Windows in Pella’s Architect Series even come with hardware options including a variety of finishes as well as the old spoon-type locks.
