It is normal to get frustrated
when your home isn’t performing up to expectations. When it comes to windows,
Pella offers professionals with an answer to your window troubles.
My vinyl windows have scuffs all over them, I am uncertain
how to get rid of them.
- Luckily, there is an easy
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 cause
disturbance to your vinyl windows. It is crucial
to clear off residue after the scuffs are erased. Do not
paint over your windows as an answer without reading the replacement window warranty policy – some companies terminate the warranty if vinyl windows are painted by the homeowner.
Common Concern: I don’t know which window type to choose
– and I have heard that climate plays a role.
- Different window materials provide
unique perks to your home. When looking to install
or replace windows, speak with your local window expert
to figure out what material might best
fit your home – and your budget. Pella has 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 good low
maintenance choice, and provide fantastic
energy efficiency – keeping your home more cozy all
year. 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 eliminate my flowers, what other routes
do I have?
- To save your flowers, there are different styles
of replacement windows you can install. If you want
the casement style, replace your window with an
in-swing casement style. This allows you to retain the
feel of your home with a small switch of a window swing direction. In-swing replacement
windows also come in a two-sash, French style. Double and single-hung windows allow for ventilation
without swinging outside or into your home. With a
little lift up or pull down, double and single-hung replacement
windows mean you can feel the breeze and fresh
air without the need to move any flowers.
