The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

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 find a combination to satisfy whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you select, there are multiple color choices to meet your design expectations.

  • 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 make it easier to clean the glass.

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

Negatives:

  • While there are a variety of designs out there,  some homeowners feel that a few grille styles might inhibit 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 is cleaned, cleaning can be more difficult.

  • Replacement windows that tout grilles are usually more costly than those without grilles.

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