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 host of styles and colors we carry, you can uncover a combination to fulfill 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 multiple color choices to meet your design expectations.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to give you more energy efficient options 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 couple positives of window grilles, let’s check out the challenges associated with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a number of designs out there,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles can obstruct their view of the yard.

  • 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 typically cleaned, cleaning can be more of a headache.

  • Replacement windows that feature grilles are usually more expensive than those without grilles.

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