Uncertain where to ask your window questions? Are you wondering if they’re as efficient as they could be or how you can add functionality? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to assist and answer your window wonders:
What type of window should I select for my house? How does the Winston-Salem climate impact my decision?
When getting ready to install or replace windows in your home, it’s essential 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 typically selected for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it offers any room, but it is also an ideal choice 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 outside elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a great fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. The windows stay looking great for ages while providing remarkable energy efficiency.
I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t put flower pots or anything outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What choices do I have?
If you love the casement-style window but also want to keep your flower boxes, check out window replacement to in-swing casement windows that use an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows provide 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 simply lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is not as important to you as the outdoor plantings around your windows.
My windows have scuffs and scrapes all over them—how do I get rid of them?
Weathered windows are typical after many years of use. Many can be cleaned as long as you have the correct products. Sometimes 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 should never use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Make sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are gone and never 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, reach out to our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Winston-Salem and we can discuss reasonable replacement windows.
