Your window questions answered by the pros

Published on

Not sure where to ask your window questions? Are you questioning if they’re as efficient as they could be or how you can increase the functionality? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to assist and answer your window curiosities:

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

When getting ready to install or replace windows in your home, it’s important to recognize 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 regularly selected for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it gives to any room, but it is also an ideal material for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors can protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows deliver great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a great fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. These windows stay looking great for a long duration while providing exceptional energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t put 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 would like to keep your flower boxes, consider window replacement to in-swing casement windows that provide an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows offer 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 around your windows.

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

Weathered windows are usual after many years of use. Many can be cleaned as long as you have the correct products. Sometimes it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you may need something stronger like vinegar to get rid of dirt— but you should never use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Make sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are erased and never paint over your windows without viewing the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a difficult scrape or break that you can’t get rid of, give our experts a call at Pella Windows and Doors in Davenport and we can discuss reasonable replacement windows.
