It is normal to get annoyed
when your home isn’t performing up to expectations. When it comes to windows,
Pella provides professionals with an answer to your window troubles.
My vinyl windows have scuffs all over them, I am unsure
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 cause
disturbance to your vinyl windows. It is essential
to clear off residue after the scuffs are erased. Do not
paint over your windows as a fix without looking
at the replacement window warranty policy – some companies remove 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 matters.
- Different window materials provide
unique benefits to your home. When looking to buy
or replace windows, chat with your local window pro
to decide 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 crafted from our patented fiberglass composite called Duracast ®,
making them resistant to even the most
extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a good low
maintenance possibility, and offer great
energy efficiency – keeping your home more comfy throughout the year. If you want the beauty of wood, Pella’s
EnduraClad® aluminum-clad exteriors help shield wood frames
from outdoor elements.
Common Concern: I
cannot open my casement style windows without hitting my patio flower boxes. I
don’t want to eliminate my flowers, what other choices
do I have?
- To save your flowers, there are different kinds
of replacement windows you can install. If you prefer
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 available in a two-sash, French style. Double and single-hung windows allow for ventilation
without swinging outside or into your home. With a simple lift up or pull down, double and single-hung replacement
windows mean you can feel the breeze and fresh
air without the need to rearrange any flowers.
