Your window questions answered by the pros

Published on

Not sure where to go with your window questions? Are you wondering if they 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 assist and answer your window wonders:

What type of window should I choose for my house? How does the Scottsdale climate affect my decision?

When looking to install or replace windows in your home, it’s important 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 a great 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 temperatures. Vinyl windows are an ideal 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 objects 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 provide an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows give 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 is less significant as the outdoor plantings around your windows.

My windows have scuffs and scrapes all over them—how can I get rid of them?

Weathered windows are usual after years and years of use. Many can be cleaned if you have the proper products. At times it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes it requires something stronger like vinegar to cut through dirt— but you should never use harsh chemicals or products on windows. You’ll need to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are removed and do not paint over your windows without looking at the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a difficult scrape or break that you can’t fix, give our experts a call at Pella Windows and Doors in Scottsdale and we can talk about reasonable replacement windows.
