A home with custom windows has an unmistakable charm that sets it apart from all others. While many of today's homes are built with standard windows, homes that were built well in the past are more likely to have them throughout the home itself. Whether it's the age of the windows in your home or a window was damaged by a storm or other accident, there are a few things you should keep in mind when it comes to replacing your custom windows. 

1. Design

When you're replacing your custom windows, you might not think too much about their design and assume that you'll just keep the original one. While there's nothing wrong with doing that, replacing custom windows gives you the chance to retain the original charm while adding features that you want and that can make your life easier. 

2. Upgrades

Sometimes your custom windows might need some adjustments to the shape and/or size to make it work better for your home. Removing the old windows and making minor adjustments to your home so that the new, energy-efficient custom windows can be installed is a popular way to retain the character of a home while still enjoying the advantages that today's windows provide. 

3. Additions

Perhaps you want to make your home have a more cohesive look during the process of adding another room or wing. The key to doing so lies in the details of the windows. You can have custom windows installed that match the other windows of your home so that seamless look is retained. 

4. The company you work with

This could be in the form of lower utility bills, higher home value, greater comfort or a combination of any of the above.
