The house, a beautiful brick colonial, built in the 1930s in Lakewood, just next to the Cleveland border, had over 20 windows to replace. This home, because of the architectural style of Lakewood homes in the 1930s, had a variety of window types and sizes.
New Vinyl Windows to Replace Old Steel
It's always a personal choice whether to buy white vinyl replacement windows, brown vinyl, tan vinyl, one of the eleven painted vinyl windows or wooden windows. Many home owners choose the white vinyl replacement windows but this customer felt the brown vinyl windows matched the original architectural style better.

Pella Wood Windows Make A Great Steel Window Replacement
Another option that would have matched the original style would have been our Pella wooden windows. Many of our customers in historic homes are actually required to use wooden windows when they replace windows in historic neighborhoods because the thicker frame of an updated vinyl replacement window can detract from the original architecture (Replacement Wood Windows in Cleveland – Ohio City , Custom Wood Windows for Historic Homes). Our Pella wood windows are aluminum clad on the outside to eliminate wood-rot while providing the natural wooden interior. Both wooden windows and steel windows have more window and less frame, allowing for maximum natural light and architectural splendor. Vinyl is substantially less expensive than a wooden window and usually much easier to clean as they tilt in to clean both interior and exterior.

Costs of New Windows in Cleveland
A window replacement job like this can be a substantial investment, with over 20 windows in such a wide variety of window types, which is why homes with new windows sell for more money. Of course the cost of keeping the old steel windows included higher energy bills with the drafty, single-pained steel windows, and the cost of compromised comfort and security with rusted-out handles and locks after years of rust, wear and tear leaving them nearly impossible to open, close and lock. Luckily Integrity Windows partners with Dollar Bank to help home owners finance replacement window projects that may be long over-due but not in the budget.
