Your window questions answered by the pros

Your window questions answered by the pros

Uncertain where to direct your window questions? Are you questioning if they are as efficient as they could be or how you can make them more functional? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to help and answer your window curiosities:

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

When getting ready to install or replace windows in your home, it’s vital to understand that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Pella Windows and Doors has 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 external elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a good fit if you are seeking a good low maintenance product. They stay looking great for years while providing excellent energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t place flower pots or items 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 provide an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows provide a similar option, allowing your windows to swing inside instead of outside, when replacing an awning style window. You can consider double- and single-hung replacement windows that just lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is less significant as the outdoor plantings by your windows.

My windows have scuffs and scrapes all over them—how do I get rid of them?

Weathered windows are typical after lots of use. Most can be cleaned when you have the proper products. At times 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. You’ll need to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are erased and don’t paint over your windows without reading the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a difficult scrape or break that you can’t get rid of, give our experts a call at Pella Windows and Doors in Boston and we can discuss reasonable replacement windows.
