Your window questions answered by the pros

Not sure where to ask 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 pick for my house? How does the Evansville climate impact my decision?

When looking to install or replace windows in your home, it’s vital to recognize 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 provides any room, but it is also a good option for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors will help protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows offer great durability against the external elements, even in extreme temperatures. Vinyl windows are an ideal fit if you are seeking a good low maintenance product. The windows stay looking great for years while providing remarkable energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t place 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, think about window replacement to in-swing casement windows that offer an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows offer a similar option, allowing your windows to swing inside instead of outside, when replacing an awning style window. You can always go with double- and single-hung replacement windows that easily lift up or pull down, if the style of the window doesn’t matter as much as the outdoor plantings by your windows.

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

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