It is common to get upset
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 unsure
how to get rid of them.
- Luckily, there is a basic
fix to clean up weathered vinyl windows. As long as you are careful
of what product you clean with, vinyl windows should
be easy 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 crucial
to clean off residue after the scuffs are erased. Do not
paint over your windows as a fix 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 pick
– and I have heard that climate matters.
- Different window materials give
unique bonuses to your home. When looking to add
or replace windows, talk to your local window pro
to determine what material is the 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 resistant to even the most
extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a perfect low
maintenance option, and provide fantastic
energy efficiency – keeping your home more cozy throughout the year. If you want the beauty of wood, Pella’s
EnduraClad® aluminum-clad exteriors help protect wood frames
from outdoor 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 options
do I have?
- To save your flowers, there are different styles
of replacement windows you can install. If you prefer
the casement style, switch out 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 enable ventilation
without swinging outside or into your home. With a
little lift up or pull down, double and single-hung replacement
windows will let you feel the breeze and fresh
air without the need to shift any flowers.
