Your window questions answered by the pros
Uncertain where to direct your window questions? Are you wondering if they are 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 choose for my house? How does the Owensboro climate affect my decision?
When getting ready to install or replace windows in your home, it’s vital to note 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 option 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 external elements, even in extreme temperatures. Vinyl windows are a good fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. These windows stay looking great for ages while providing exceptional energy efficiency.
I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t place flower pots or anything outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What options 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 offer an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows give 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 surrounding your windows.
My windows have scuffs and scrapes all over them—how can I get rid of them?
Weathered windows are common after many years of use. The majority can be cleaned as long as you have the proper products. Sometimes it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you’ll need something stronger like vinegar to get rid of dirt— but you shouldn’t ever use harsh chemicals or products on windows. You’ll need to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are erased and never paint over your windows without looking at the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a difficult scrape or break that you cannot repair, reach out to our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Owensboro and we can chat about reasonable replacement windows.
