Your window questions answered by the pros

Published on

Not sure where to direct your window questions? Are you questioning if your windows are as efficient as they could be or how you can make them more functional? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to assist and answer your window questions:

What type of window should I select for my house? How does the Greensboro climate impact my decision?

When taking the steps to install or replace windows in your home, it’s essential to understand that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Pella Windows and Doors offers three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is typically chosen for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it offers any room, but it is also a great option for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors can protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows deliver great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are an ideal fit if you want 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 set flower pots or anything outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What choices do I have?

If you love the casement-style window but also want to keep your flower boxes, check out window replacement to in-swing casement windows that use an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows provide a similar option, allowing your windows to swing inside instead of outside, when replacing an awning style window. You can consider double- and single-hung replacement windows that just lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is not as important to you as the outdoor plantings by your windows.

My windows have scuffs and scrapes all over them—how should I get rid of them?

Weathered windows are typical after lots of use. The majority can be cleaned when you have the proper products. Occassionally it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you may need something stronger like vinegar to cut through 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 gone and don’t paint over your windows without reading the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a difficult scrape or break that you can’t fix, reach out to our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Greensboro and we can discuss reasonable replacement windows.
