Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated portion of your home’s windows. They offer you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design wishes, and with the number of styles and colors offered, you can discover a combination to fulfill whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

  • Removable between-the-glass grilles easily snap in and out so you have the ability to change styles whenever you update your home or change styles or paint.

  • Regardless of the window grilles you go with, there are a handful of color choices to meet your design needs.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to provide more energy efficient options than historical grilles used with single-pane glass.

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removeable grilles are available to make it easier to clean the glass.

Now that we’ve taken a look at a few positives of window grilles, let’s take a look at the challenges that may come with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a variety of designs we carry,  some homeowners feel that some grille styles can obstruct their view of the outside world.

  • Many window grilles are permanent once installed, limiting design flexibility in the future.

  • If grilles are bonded permanently to the surface of the glass that typically cleaned, cleaning can be more of a challenge.

  • Replacement windows that tout grilles are typically more pricey than those that don’t feature grilles.
