It is normal to get upset
when your home isn’t performing up to expectations. When it comes to windows,
Pella offers 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 simple 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 crucial
to clean off residue after the scuffs are erased. Do not
paint over your windows as a fix without looking
at 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 benefits to your home. When looking to install
or replace windows, talk to your local window professional
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 made from our patented fiberglass composite called Duracast ®,
making them tough against even the most
extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a good low
maintenance option, and offer great
energy efficiency – keeping your home more comfortable all
year. If you want the beauty of wood, Pella’s
EnduraClad® aluminum-clad exteriors help guard wood frames
from harsh elements.
Common Concern: I
cannot open my casement style windows without hitting my patio flower boxes. I
don’t want to get rid of my flowers, what other options
do I have?
- To save your flowers, there are different styles
of replacement windows you can get. If you want
the casement style, replace 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 are also offered in a two-sash, French style. Double and single-hung windows permit ventilation
without swinging outside or into your home. With a
little lift up or pull down, double and single-hung replacement
windows mean you can feel the breeze and fresh
air without the need to rearrange any flowers.
