Your window questions answered by the pros

Your window questions answered by the pros

Not sure where to direct your window questions? Are you speculating 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 support you and answer your window wonders:

What type of window should I select for my house? How does the Monroe climate impact my decision?

When getting ready to install or replace windows in your home, it’s vital to recognize 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 picked for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it provides any room, but it is also an ideal choice for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors will help protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows provide great durability against the external elements, even in extreme temperatures. Vinyl windows are a great fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. They stay looking great for ages while providing exceptional energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t put 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, check out window replacement to in-swing casement windows that use an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows offer 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 simply lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is not as important to you as the outdoor plantings around your windows.

My windows have scuffs and scrapes all over them—how do I get rid of them?

Weathered windows are typical after lots of use. The majority can be cleaned when you have the proper products. At times 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. You’ll need to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are erased and never paint over your windows without viewing the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a stubborn scrape or break that you cannot repair, call our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Monroe and we can chat about reasonable replacement windows.
