It is common to get frustrated
when your home isn’t performing up to expectations. When it comes to windows,
Pella has 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 simple
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 remove residue after the scuffs are erased. Do not
paint over your windows as an answer without reading the replacement window warranty policy – some companies get
rid of 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 part.
- Different window materials offer
unique benefits to your home. When looking to add
or replace windows, speak with your local window professional
to decide 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 crafted from our patented fiberglass composite called Duracast ®,
making them tough against even the most
extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a good low
maintenance option, and provide exceptional
energy efficiency – keeping your home more comfortable all
year. If you want the beauty of wood, Pella’s
EnduraClad® aluminum-clad exteriors help shield 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 choices
do I have?
- To save your flowers, there are different kinds
of replacement windows you can get. If you want
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 are also offered 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 mean you can feel the breeze and fresh
air without the need to shift any flowers.
