I am considering replacing the windows in my home. However, my historic home is only allowed wood frame windows. What are the most efficient ones, and what should I expect for the average cost?
I currently have outside storm windows over my inside wood windows. They are falling apart and need to be replaced. Should I get one whole new window or look for just storms? What is the best mid-grade replacement window? My house is not sided and has wooden cedar shakes on the outside. If I put in replacement windows, they will cover the painted trim around the edge of the window that matches the trim on the house and it will be all white. Then there will be no contrast around the window. A storm window will not cover that wood but I'm told storms are old news.
I'm remodeling a home and installing new storm windows. What features should I consider? I live in Orlando, which is known for heat, humidity, and the occasional windy storm.
