Uncertain where to ask your window questions? Are you speculating 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 support you and answer your window questions:
What type of window should I pick for my house? How does the Colorado Springs climate influence my decision?
When looking to install or replace windows in your home, it’s vital to note 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 usually picked for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it gives to any room, but it is also an ideal choice for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors can protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows deliver great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme temperatures. Vinyl windows are an ideal fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. They stay looking great for ages while providing exceptional energy efficiency.
I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t put flower pots or objects outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What alternatives do I have?
If you love the casement-style window but also want 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 simply lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is less significant 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 years and years of use. The majority can be cleaned when you have the correct products. Occassionally it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you may need something stronger like vinegar to cut through dirt— but you must not use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Make sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are erased and do not 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 Colorado Springs and we can chat about reasonable replacement windows.
