Uncertain where to go with your window questions? Are you wondering if they’re as efficient as they could be or how you can make them more functional? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to assist and answer your window curiosities:
What type of window should I pick for my house? How does the Boone climate affect my decision?
When getting ready to install or replace windows in your home, it’s important to understand that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Pella Windows and Doors has 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 material for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors can protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows provide great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a great fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. They stay looking great for many years while providing remarkable energy efficiency.
I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t set flower pots or objects outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What alternatives do I have?
If you love the casement-style window but prefer 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 consider double- and single-hung replacement windows that just 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 can I get rid of them?
Weathered windows are common after years and years of use. Most can be cleaned if you have the appropriate products. Occassionally 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. Make sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are removed and never paint over your windows without viewing the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a difficult scrape or break that you can’t get rid of, give our experts a call at Pella Windows and Doors in Boone and we can chat about reasonable replacement windows.
