Pella Window Questions

Your window questions answered by the pros

Published on

Uncertain where to direct your window questions? Are you wondering 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 assist and answer your window wonders:

What type of window should I select for my house? How does the Charlotte 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 offers three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is typically chosen for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it provides any room, but it is also a great material for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors will help protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows provide great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a great fit if you want a good low maintenance product. These windows stay looking great for many years while providing excellent 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 prefer 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 also look at double- and single-hung replacement windows that simply lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is not as important to you as the outdoor plantings surrounding your windows.

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

Weathered windows are typical after many years of use. Most can be cleaned when 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 must not use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Make sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are removed and don’t paint over your windows without reading the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a persistent scrape or break that you can’t get rid of, call our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Charlotte and we can discuss reasonable replacement windows.
