Window Grills

The Positives and Negatives of Window Grilles

Published on

Window grilles are an often underappreciated piece of your home’s windows. They give 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 achieve whatever your heart desires.

Positives:

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

  • Regardless of the window grilles you choose, there are a handful of 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 allow for easier cleaning of the glass.

Now that we’ve seen a couple positives of window grilles, let’s check out the challenges associated with window grilles.

Negatives:

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

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

Whether you’re moving and need to get replacement windows or you’re simply shopping around for your current home, window grilles can be a great addition to your next set of windows.
