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 needs, 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 have the ability to change styles whenever you update your home or change styles or paint.

  • Regardless of the window grilles you go with, there are a few color choices to meet your design expectations.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to offer 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 taken a look at a handful of positives of window grilles, let’s read about the challenges associated with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a variety of designs out there,  some homeowners feel that certain 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 of a headache.

  • Replacement windows that showcase grilles are usually more expensive than those that don’t feature 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 add-on to your next set of windows.
