Your window questions answered by the pros

Published on

Not sure where to direct your window questions? Are you speculating if they are as efficient as they could be or how you can increase the functionality? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to assist and answer your window curiosities:

What type of window should I choose for my house? How does the Hanover climate impact 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 offers three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is regularly chosen for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it provides any room, but it is also an ideal option for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors will help protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows offer great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a good fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. These windows stay looking great for a long duration while providing excellent 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 options do I have?

If you love the casement-style window but also want to keep your flower boxes, check out window replacement to in-swing casement windows that offer 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 always go with double- and single-hung replacement windows that simply 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 do I get rid of them?

Weathered windows are usual after years and years of use. The majority can be cleaned when you have the correct products. Sometimes it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you’ll need something stronger like vinegar to cut through 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 don’t paint over your windows without viewing the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a stubborn scrape or break that you can’t fix, give our experts a call at Pella Windows and Doors in Hanover and we can discuss reasonable replacement windows.
