Not sure where to ask your window questions? Are you wondering if they are as efficient as they could be or how you can add functionality? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to assist and answer your window questions:
What type of window should I select for my house? How does the Asheville climate influence my decision?
When looking to install or replace windows in your home, it’s essential to recognize that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Pella Windows and Doors offers three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is typically picked for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it gives to any room, but it is also an ideal material for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors helps to protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows deliver great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme temps. Vinyl windows are a good fit if you are seeking a good low maintenance product. They 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 objects outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What options do I have?
If you love the casement-style window but prefer to keep your flower boxes, think about window replacement to in-swing casement windows that use 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 always go with double- and single-hung replacement windows that easily lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is not as important to you 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 usual after years and years of use. Many can be cleaned if you have the proper products. At times it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you may need something stronger like vinegar to cut through dirt— but you should never use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Make sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are removed and don’t paint over your windows without viewing the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a stubborn scrape or break that you can’t get rid of, call our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Asheville and we can discuss reasonable replacement windows.
