The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

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

Positives:

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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you choose, there are a few color choices to meet your design requirements.

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

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removeable grilles are available to make it easier to clean the glass.

Now that we’ve taken a look at a handful of positives of window grilles, let’s read about the challenges associated with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a variety of designs available,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles can block 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 is cleaned, cleaning can be more of a headache.

  • Replacement windows that feature grilles are sometimes more costly than those without grilles.

Whether you’re moving and need to purchase replacement windows or you’re simply looking for your current home, window grilles can be a great add-on to your next set of windows.
