Your window questions answered by the pros

Uncertain where to direct 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 assist and answer your window questions:

What type of window should I select for my house? How does the Murray climate impact 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 selected for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it gives to any room, but it is also a good 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 temps. Vinyl windows are an ideal fit if you are seeking 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 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 would like to keep your flower boxes, think about window replacement to in-swing casement windows that provide 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 simply lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is less significant 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. Many can be cleaned as long as you have the correct products. Occassionally it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you’ll need something stronger like vinegar to remove dirt— but you shouldn’t ever use harsh chemicals or products on windows. You’ll need to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are gone and do not 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 get rid of, reach out to our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Murray and we can chat about reasonable replacement windows.
