Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated portion of your home’s windows. They give you the flexibility to meet both contemporary and traditional design needs, and with the variety of styles and colors we carry, you can find a combination to satisfy whatever your heart desires.


  • Removable between-the-glass grilles easily snap in and out so you are able to swap styles whenever you update your home or change styles or paint.

  • Regardless of the window grilles you go with, there are a few color choices to meet your design needs.

  • Grille options are available today with dual or triple pane insulated glass to offer more energy efficient choices than historical grilles used with single-pane glass.

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removeable grilles are available to make it easier to clean the glass.

Now that we’ve read a few positives of window grilles, let’s take a look at the challenges surrounding window grilles.


  • While there are a variety of designs available,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles might obstruct their view of the outdoors.

  • Many window grilles are permanent once installed, limiting design flexibility in the future.

  • If grilles are bonded permanently to the surface of the glass that typically cleaned, cleaning can be more of a challenge.

  • Replacement windows that feature grilles are typically more costly than those without grilles.
