The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Window grilles are an often underappreciated portion of your home’s windows. They provide you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design needs, and with the number of styles and colors we carry, you can discover a combination to satisfy whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

  • Removable between-the-glass grilles easily snap in and out so you are able to change styles whenever you update your home or change styles or paint.

  • Regardless of the window grilles you choose, there are multiple color choices to meet your design needs.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to provide more energy efficient choices than historical grilles used with single-pane glass.

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removeable grilles are available to make for a quick cleaning of the glass.

Now that we’ve seen a couple positives of window grilles, let’s check out the challenges that may come with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a host of designs out there,  some homeowners feel that some grille styles may block their view of the outdoors.

  • Many window grilles are permanent once installed, limiting design flexibility in the future.

  • If grilles are bonded permanently to the surface of the glass that needs to be cleaned, cleaning can be more of a challenge.

  • Replacement windows that tout grilles are sometimes more pricey than those that don’t have grilles.
