Your window questions answered by the pros

Published on

Uncertain where to go with your window questions? Are you wondering if your windows are 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 wonders:

What type of window should I pick for my house? How does the San Antonio climate influence my decision?

When getting ready 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 has three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is regularly picked for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it gives to any room, but it is also an ideal material for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors helps to protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows deliver great durability against the external elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a great fit if you are seeking a good low maintenance product. These windows 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 anything 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 provide 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 easily lift up or pull down, if the style of the window doesn’t matter as much 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 typical after lots of use. Most can be cleaned when you have the correct products. Sometimes it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes it requires something stronger like vinegar to remove dirt— but you should never use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Make sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are erased and never paint over your windows without looking at 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 San Antonio and we can chat about reasonable replacement windows.
