It is ordinary 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 issues.
My vinyl windows have scuffs all over them, I am not sure
how to get rid of them.
- Luckily, there is a basic
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 be hard to your vinyl windows. It is essential
to clean off residue after the scuffs are erased. Do not
paint over your windows as a fix without looking
at 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 part.
- Different window materials offer
unique perks to your home. When looking to add
or replace windows, talk to your local window expert
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 crafted from our patented fiberglass composite called Duracast ®,
making them resistant to even the most
extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a perfect low
maintenance possibility, and offer fantastic
energy efficiency – keeping your home more comfortable year-round. 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 get rid of my flowers, what other routes
do I have?
- To save your flowers, there are different types
of replacement windows you can get. 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 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 will let you feel the breeze and fresh
air without the need to shift any flowers.
