Window Woes and Wisdom from Pros

Window Woes and Wisdom from Pros

It is normal to get upset when your home isn’t performing up to expectations. When it comes to windows, Pella offers professionals with an answer to your window troubles.

Common Concern: My vinyl windows have scuffs all over them, I am uncertain how to get rid of them.

  • Luckily, there is an easy fix to clean up weathered vinyl windows. As long as you are cautious of what product you clean with, vinyl windows should be easy to maintain. It is as simple as a soft cloth and a mild soap. You should also avoid harsh and abrasive solvents, as they can be hard to your vinyl windows. It is critical to remove residue after the scuffs are erased. Do not paint over your windows as an answer without looking at the replacement window warranty policy – some companies get rid of the warranty if vinyl windows are painted by the homeowner.

Common Concern: I don’t know which window type to pick – and I have heard that climate matters.

  • Different window materials offer unique benefits to your home. When looking to add or replace windows, chat with your local window pro to figure out what material might best fit your home – and your budget. Pella creates windows made from several material types - wood, vinyl and fiberglass. Our fiberglass windows are created with our patented fiberglass composite called Duracast ®, making them tough against even the most extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a perfect low maintenance option, and offer great energy efficiency – keeping your home more cozy all year. If you want the beauty of wood, Pella’s EnduraClad® aluminum-clad exteriors help protect wood frames from outdoor elements.

Common Concern: I cannot open my casement style windows without hitting my patio flower boxes. I don’t want to throw away my flowers, what other routes do I have?

  • To save your flowers, there are different types of replacement windows you can get. If you choose the casement style, swap out your window with an in-swing casement style. This allows you to retain the feel of your home with a small switch of a window swing direction. In-swing replacement windows are also available in a two-sash, French style. Double and single-hung windows permit ventilation without swinging outside or into your home. With a simple lift up or pull down, double and single-hung replacement windows mean you can feel the breeze and fresh air without the need to rearrange any flowers.
