It is common to get annoyed
when your home isn’t performing up to expectations. When it comes to windows,
Pella has professionals with an answer to your window woes.
My vinyl windows have scuffs all over them, I am unsure
how to get rid of them.
- Luckily, there is a basic
fix to clean up weathered vinyl windows. As long as you are cautious
of what product you clean with, vinyl windows should
be a breeze to maintain. It is as simple as a soft cloth and
a mild soap. You should also avoid harsh and abrasive solvents, as they can be detrimental to your vinyl windows. It is critical
to clear off residue after the scuffs are erased. Do not
paint over your windows as a fix without reading the replacement window warranty policy – some companies terminate the warranty if vinyl windows are painted by the homeowner.
Common Concern: I don’t know which window type to select
– and I have heard that climate matters.
- Different window materials offer
unique bonuses to your home. When looking to install
or replace windows, chat with your local window pro
to decide what material may best
fit your home – and your budget. Pella creates windows made
from several material types - wood, vinyl and fiberglass. Our fiberglass windows are created
with our patented fiberglass composite called Duracast ®,
making them resilient against even the most
extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a great low
maintenance possibility, and offer great
energy efficiency – keeping your home more cozy all
year. If you want the beauty of wood, Pella’s
EnduraClad® aluminum-clad exteriors help protect wood frames
from outside elements.
Common Concern: I
cannot open my casement style windows without hitting my patio flower boxes. I
don’t want to throw away my flowers, what other routes
do I have?
- To save your flowers, there are different kinds
of replacement windows you can get. If you prefer
the casement style, switch out your window with an
in-swing casement style. This allows you to preserve the
feel of your home with a small switch of a window swing direction. In-swing replacement
windows also come in a two-sash, French style. Double and single-hung windows permit ventilation
without swinging outside or into your home. With a simple lift up or pull down, double and single-hung replacement
windows allow you to feel the breeze and fresh
air without the need to move any flowers.
