Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated piece of your home’s windows. They provide you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wishes, and with the variety of styles and colors offered, you can find a combination to satisfy whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

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

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

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

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removeable grilles are available to allow for easier cleaning of the glass.

Now that we’ve read a few positives of window grilles, let’s take a look at the challenges associated with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a variety of designs we carry,  some homeowners feel that a few 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 difficult.

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

Whether you’re moving and need to purchase replacement windows or you’re simply considering them for your current home, window grilles can be a great accent to your next set of windows.
