Pella Window Questions

Your window questions answered by the pros

Published on

Uncertain where to ask your window questions? Are you speculating if your windows 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 select for my house? How does the Wellesley climate influence my decision?

When looking to install or replace windows in your home, it’s essential to understand that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Pella Windows and Doors provides three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is regularly selected for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it provides any room, but it is also an ideal choice for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors helps to protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows offer great durability against the outside elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a great fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. The windows stay looking great for a long duration while providing remarkable energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t place 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 would like to keep your flower boxes, think about 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 also look at 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 can I get rid of them?

Weathered windows are typical after years and years of use. Most can be cleaned if you have the appropriate products. Sometimes it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you may need something stronger like vinegar to cut through 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 gone and don’t paint over your windows without reading the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a stubborn scrape or break that you can’t fix, call our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Wellesley and we can chat about reasonable replacement windows.
