Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated portion of your home’s windows. They provide you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wants, and with the host of styles and colors available, you can uncover a combination to satisfy whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you choose, there are a few color choices to meet your design requirements.

  • 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 we carry,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles can block their view of the outside world.

  • 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 showcase grilles are sometimes more expensive 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 could be a great accent to your next set of windows.
