It is normal to get annoyed
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 an easy
fix to clean up weathered vinyl windows. As long as you are precautious
of what product you clean with, vinyl windows should
be easy 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 critical
to remove residue after the scuffs are erased. Do not
paint over your windows as an answer without looking
at 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 choose
– and I have heard that climate plays a part.
- Different window materials give
unique perks to your home. When looking to install
or replace windows, talk to your local window expert
to decide what material might best
fit your home – and your budget. Pella offers windows made
from several material types - wood, vinyl and fiberglass. Our fiberglass windows are created
with our patented fiberglass composite called Duracast ®,
making them tough against even the most
extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a great low
maintenance option, and offer exceptional
energy efficiency – keeping your home more comfy throughout the 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 kinds
of replacement windows you can buy. If you prefer
the casement style, replace your window with an
in-swing casement style. This allows you to preserve 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 permit 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 rearrange any flowers.
