Windows are a great way to improve natural light, airflow, and the overall look of your home. If your windows are old, damaged, or simply outdated, consider a home window replacement from P.J. Fitzpatrick. Here, our home improvement experts offer some insight that can help you choose the right windows for your Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or Maryland home:


Today, windows come in a wide variety of styles, and each of these styles offers a unique movement. Before you replace your windows, consider the movement you prefer. Do you want a simple picture window that lets in light but doesn’t open? Are you looking for windows that open with a crank? Would you prefer windows that can open from the bottom and the top? Talk to the experts at P.J. Fitzpatrick. We can discuss our window options and which is best for your home.

Energy Efficiency

Here in the Northeast, the winters get pretty cold and the summers get pretty hot. Because of this, energy efficiency an important part of window selection. The more insulated the window, the better it will work to seal out the hot or cold air outside. If you choose low-quality windows, you could lose up to 35% of your home’s heat or air conditioning. At P.J. Fitzpatrick, we can make sure your home window replacement is one that benefits your energy bills.


Windows have come a long way and today, they’re made from a variety of materials. Which material you choose depends on your budget, the look you want, and the level of maintenance you desire. In addition, the window style you choose could help you determine the frame material.

Curb Appeal

If you’re considering a home window replacement, make sure you consider the interior appeal and the exterior appeal. While one type of window may look good from the inside, it may not offer the same look on the outside. Take into account the style of your home and what type of window best complements it.

Another thing to take into account is window color. You’ll want to choose a window color that looks good while you’re in the room and while you’re outside looking in. Your home’s curb appeal can provide a positive impression on friends, family, visitors, and even home buyers.
