Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

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


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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you select, 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 taken a look at a handful of positives of window grilles, let’s read about the challenges associated with window grilles.


  • While there are a host of designs we carry,  some homeowners feel that a few grille styles may 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 is cleaned, cleaning can be more of a challenge.

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

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