Pella Window Questions

Your window questions answered by the pros

Published on

Uncertain where to ask your window questions? Are you questioning if your windows are as efficient as they could be or how you can add functionality? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to support you and answer your window curiosities:

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

When looking to install or replace windows in your home, it’s important to recognize 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 regularly picked for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it offers any room, but it is also a good option 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 outside elements, even in extreme temps. Vinyl windows are a great fit if you want a good low maintenance product. The windows stay looking great for years while providing excellent energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t place flower pots or items outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What alternatives 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 provide 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 also look at double- and single-hung replacement windows that simply lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is less significant as the outdoor plantings surrounding your windows.

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

Weathered windows are usual after many years of use. The majority can be cleaned if you have the correct products. At times 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 shouldn’t ever 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 looking at the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a stubborn scrape or break that you can’t fix, give our experts a call at Pella Windows and Doors in Woburn and we can talk about reasonable replacement windows.
