It is normal to get frustrated
when your home isn’t performing up to expectations. When it comes to windows,
Pella offers professionals with an answer to your window troubles.
My vinyl windows have scuffs all over them, I am uncertain
how to get rid of them.
- Luckily, there is a simple
fix to clean up weathered vinyl windows. As long as you are precautious
of what product you clean with, vinyl windows should
be a breeze to maintain. It is as simple as a soft cloth and
a mild soap. You should also avoid harsh and abrasive solvents, as they can be hard to your vinyl windows. It is essential
to clear off residue after the scuffs are erased. Do not
paint over your windows as an answer without looking
at the replacement window warranty policy – some companies terminate the warranty if vinyl windows are painted by the homeowner.
Common Concern: I don’t know which window type to pick
– and I have heard that climate plays a role.
- Different window materials give
unique bonuses to your home. When looking to add
or replace windows, speak with your local window professional
to figure out what material might best
fit your home – and your budget. Pella has windows made
from several material types - wood, vinyl and fiberglass. Our fiberglass windows are made from our patented fiberglass composite called Duracast ®,
making them resistant to even the most
extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a perfect low
maintenance choice, and provide great
energy efficiency – keeping your home more cozy year-round. If you want the beauty of wood, Pella’s
EnduraClad® aluminum-clad exteriors help protect wood frames
from outside elements.
Common Concern: I
cannot open my casement style windows without hitting my patio flower boxes. I
don’t want to throw away my flowers, what other routes
do I have?
- To save your flowers, there are different kinds
of replacement windows you can get. If you want
the casement style, swap out your window with an
in-swing casement style. This allows you to maintain the
feel of your home with a small switch of a window swing direction. In-swing replacement
windows are also offered in a two-sash, French style. Double and single-hung windows allow for ventilation
without swinging outside or into your home. With an easy lift up or pull down, double and single-hung replacement
windows will let you feel the breeze and fresh
air without the need to shift any flowers.
