It is common to get annoyed
when your home isn’t performing up to expectations. When it comes to windows,
Pella has professionals with an answer to your window issues.
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 a breeze 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 hard to your vinyl windows. It is critical
to clear off residue after the scuffs are erased. Do not
paint over your windows as an answer without checking out the replacement window warranty policy – some companies remove 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 plays a role.
- Different window materials give
unique bonuses to your home. When looking to add
or replace windows, talk to your local window professional
to determine what material might best
fit your home – and your budget. Pella offers windows made
from several material types - wood, vinyl and fiberglass. Our fiberglass windows are created
with our patented fiberglass composite called Duracast ®,
making them resilient against even the most
extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a great low
maintenance possibility, and give you fantastic
energy efficiency – keeping your home more comfy year-round. If you want the beauty of wood, Pella’s
EnduraClad® aluminum-clad exteriors help shield wood frames
from outside 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 types
of replacement windows you can install. If you want
the casement style, swap out your window with an
in-swing casement style. This allows you to maintain the
feel of your home with a small switch of a window swing direction. In-swing replacement
windows are also available in a two-sash, French style. Double and single-hung windows permit ventilation
without swinging outside or into your home. With a simple lift up or pull down, double and single-hung replacement
windows will let you feel the breeze and fresh
air without the need to move any flowers.
