It is common 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 troubles.
My vinyl windows have scuffs all over them, I am not sure
how to get rid of them.
- Luckily, there is an easy
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 critical
to remove residue after the scuffs are erased. Do not
paint over your windows as a solution 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 pick
– and I have heard that climate matters.
- Different window materials give
unique benefits to your home. When looking to add
or replace windows, chat with your local window pro
to decide what material may best
fit your home – and your budget. Pella creates windows made
from several material types - wood, vinyl and fiberglass. Our fiberglass windows are crafted from our patented fiberglass composite called Duracast ®,
making them resilient against even the most
extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a good low
maintenance choice, and give you fantastic
energy efficiency – keeping your home more comfortable all
year. If you want the beauty of wood, Pella’s
EnduraClad® aluminum-clad exteriors help guard wood frames
from harsh 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 styles
of replacement windows you can install. If you choose
the casement style, swap out 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 are also available 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.
