Your window questions answered by the pros

Published on

Not sure where to go with 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 support you and answer your window curiosities:

What type of window should I pick for my house? How does the Roanoke climate impact my decision?

When taking the steps to install or replace windows in your home, it’s vital to understand that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Pella Windows and Doors has three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is usually picked for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it provides any room, but it is also an ideal choice 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 outside elements, even in extreme temps. Vinyl windows are a good fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. The windows stay looking great for many years while providing exceptional energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t place flower pots or items outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What options do I have?

If you love the casement-style window but would like to keep your flower boxes, think about window replacement to in-swing casement windows that provide an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows offer a similar option, allowing your windows to swing inside instead of outside, when replacing an awning style window. You can consider 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 typical after many years of use. Most can be cleaned as long as you have the proper products. Sometimes it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you may need something stronger like vinegar to remove dirt— but you shouldn’t ever use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Make sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are gone and don’t paint over your windows without reading the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a difficult scrape or break that you can’t fix, call our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Roanoke and we can talk about reasonable replacement windows.
