Pella Window Questions

Your window questions answered by the pros

Published on

Unsure where to go with 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 assist and answer your window questions:

What type of window should I pick for my house? How does the Denver climate impact my decision?

When taking the steps to install or replace windows in your home, it’s important to note 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 usually picked for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it gives to any room, but it is also a good choice for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors can protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows offer great durability against the outside elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are an ideal fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. They stay looking great for ages while providing exceptional energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t set flower pots or objects outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What alternatives do I have?

If you love the casement-style window but also want to keep your flower boxes, think about 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 just 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 common after years and years of use. Most can be cleaned when you have the proper products. Occassionally it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you’ll need something stronger like vinegar to get rid of dirt— but you must not use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Be sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are gone and never paint over your windows without looking at the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a persistent scrape or break that you can’t get rid of, reach out to our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Denver and we can talk about reasonable replacement windows.
