It is common to get frustrated
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 uncertain
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 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 cause
disturbance to your vinyl windows. It is essential
to clean off residue after the scuffs are erased. Do not
paint over your windows as a solution 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 plays a role.
- Different window materials offer
unique benefits to your home. When looking to buy
or replace windows, chat with your local window pro
to figure out 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 choice, and offer exceptional
energy efficiency – keeping your home more comfortable all
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 throw away my flowers, what other choices
do I have?
- To save your flowers, there are different styles
of replacement windows you can buy. If you choose
the casement style, replace your window with an
in-swing casement style. This allows you to maintain 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 permit ventilation
without swinging outside or into your home. With an easy lift up or pull down, double and single-hung replacement
windows mean you can feel the breeze and fresh
air without the need to rearrange any flowers.
