Your window questions answered by the pros

Your window questions answered by the pros

Unsure where to ask your window questions? Are you questioning if your windows are as efficient as they could be or how you can increase the functionality? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to support you and answer your window wonders:

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

When looking to install or replace windows in your home, it’s vital to understand that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Pella Windows and Doors has three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is usually chosen for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it offers any room, but it is also a great material for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors will help protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows provide great durability against the outside elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a good fit if you are seeking a good low maintenance product. These windows stay looking great for years while providing excellent energy efficiency.

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

If you love the casement-style window but also want to keep your flower boxes, check out 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 doesn’t matter as much as the outdoor plantings around your windows.

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

Weathered windows are common after many years of use. Many can be cleaned as long as you have the appropriate products. Occassionally 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 shouldn’t ever use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Be sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are erased and never paint over your windows without reading the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a stubborn scrape or break that you cannot repair, give our experts a call at Pella Windows and Doors in Norwalk and we can talk about reasonable replacement windows.
