Your window questions answered by the pros
Not sure where to ask your window questions? Are you wondering if your windows are as efficient as they could be or how you can increase the functionality? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to support you and answer your window questions:
What type of window should I select for my house? How does the Greenfield climate affect my decision?
When looking to install or replace windows in your home, it’s vital to note that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Pella Windows and Doors provides three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is usually chosen for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it gives to any room, but it is also an ideal material for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors will help protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows provide great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a good fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. The windows stay looking great for years while providing remarkable energy efficiency.
I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t put flower pots or anything outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What alternatives do I have?
If you love the casement-style window but would like to keep your flower boxes, consider window replacement to in-swing casement windows that use an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows give a similar option, allowing your windows to swing inside instead of outside, when replacing an awning style window. You can also look at double- and single-hung replacement windows that easily lift up or pull down, if the style of the window doesn’t matter as much as the outdoor plantings by your windows.
My windows have scuffs and scrapes all over them—how can I get rid of them?
Weathered windows are usual after years and years of use. The majority can be cleaned as long as you have the proper products. At times it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you’ll need something stronger like vinegar to get rid of dirt— but you must not use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Be sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are erased and don’t paint over your windows without viewing the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a stubborn scrape or break that you can’t get rid of, call our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Greenfield and we can discuss reasonable replacement windows.
