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 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 wonders:

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

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

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t set flower pots or objects outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What choices 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 provide an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows give 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 just 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 should I get rid of them?

Weathered windows are usual after years and years of use. Most can be cleaned when you have the correct products. At times it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you may need something stronger like vinegar to get rid of 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 removed and never paint over your windows without viewing the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a difficult scrape or break that you cannot repair, call our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Shrewsbury and we can talk about reasonable replacement windows.
