Your window questions answered by the pros

Unsure where to ask your window questions? Are you wondering if your windows are 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 Fall River climate impact my decision?

When taking the steps 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 offers three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is usually selected for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it gives to any room, but it is also a good material for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors will help protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows deliver great durability against the external elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a good 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 put flower pots or anything outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What options do I have?

If you love the casement-style window but prefer to keep your flower boxes, think about window replacement to in-swing casement windows that offer 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 also look at 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 should I get rid of them?

Weathered windows are typical after many 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 must not use harsh chemicals or products on windows. You’ll need to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are gone and do not paint over your windows without viewing the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a difficult scrape or break that you cannot repair, give our experts a call at Pella Windows and Doors in Fall River and we can discuss reasonable replacement windows.
