Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

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

Positives:

  • Removable between-the-glass grilles easily snap in and out so you are able to switch 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 expectations.

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

  • Between-the-glass grilles and removeable grilles are available to make for a quick cleaning of the glass.

Now that we’ve seen a handful of positives of window grilles, let’s read about the challenges associated with window grilles.

Negatives:

  • While there are a host of designs we carry,  some homeowners feel that certain grille styles can obstruct their view of the yard.

  • 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 is cleaned, cleaning can be more difficult.

  • Replacement windows that feature grilles are typically more expensive than those that don’t feature grilles.

Whether you’re moving and need to get replacement windows or you’re simply shopping around for your current home, window grilles could be a great add-on to your next set of windows.
