Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated portion of your home’s windows. They provide you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design needs, and with the host of styles and colors we carry, you can uncover a combination to fulfill whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you choose, there are multiple 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 couple positives of window grilles, let’s check out the challenges that may come with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a host of designs we carry,  some homeowners feel that a few grille styles can 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 showcase grilles are typically more expensive than those without grilles.

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