Pella Window Questions

Your window questions answered by the pros

Published on

Uncertain where to ask your window questions? Are you wondering if your windows are as efficient as they could be or how you can make them more functional? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to help and answer your window wonders:

What type of window should I select for my house? How does the Nashville climate affect my decision?

When taking the steps to install or replace windows in your home, it’s vital to understand that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Pella Windows and Doors provides three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is regularly picked for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it provides any room, but it is also a good option for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors helps to protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows provide great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme temps. Vinyl windows are an ideal fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. These windows stay looking great for many years while providing exceptional energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t set flower pots or anything outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What alternatives do I have?

If you love the casement-style window but would like to keep your flower boxes, consider window replacement to in-swing casement windows that use an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows give a similar option, allowing your windows to swing inside instead of outside, when replacing an awning style window. You can always go with double- and single-hung replacement windows that easily lift up or pull down, if the style of the window doesn’t matter as much as the outdoor plantings around your windows.

My windows have scuffs and scrapes all over them—how can I get rid of them?

Weathered windows are typical after years and years of use. The majority can be cleaned as long as you have the proper products. At times it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you may need something stronger like vinegar to remove dirt— but you shouldn’t ever use harsh chemicals or products on windows. You’ll need to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are gone and don’t paint over your windows without reading the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a persistent scrape or break that you can’t get rid of, call our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Nashville and we can discuss reasonable replacement windows.
