Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated piece of your home’s windows. They give you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wants, and with the variety of styles and colors we carry, you can uncover a combination to satisfy whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

  • Removable between-the-glass grilles easily snap in and out so you are able to swap styles whenever you update your home or change styles or paint.

  • Regardless of the window grilles you select, there are a handful of color choices to meet your design needs.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to give you more energy efficient choices than historical grilles used with single-pane glass.

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removeable grilles are available to make for a quick cleaning of the glass.

Now that we’ve read a handful of positives of window grilles, let’s read about the challenges that may come with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a host of designs out there,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles might obstruct 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 typically cleaned, cleaning can be more difficult.

  • Replacement windows that feature grilles are usually more expensive than those that don’t have grilles.
