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 offer you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design needs, and with the variety of styles and colors we carry, you can uncover a combination to achieve whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you select, there are a few color choices to meet your design requirements.

  • 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 handful of positives of window grilles, let’s read about the challenges that may come with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a variety of designs out there,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles might obstruct their view of the outside world.

  • 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 is cleaned, cleaning can be more of a challenge.

  • Replacement windows that tout grilles are usually more pricey than those that don’t feature grilles.
