Pella Window Questions

Your window questions answered by the pros

Published on

Unsure where to go with your window questions? Are you questioning if they’re as efficient as they could be or how you can make them more functional? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to support you and answer your window curiosities:

What type of window should I choose for my house? How does the Kansas City climate influence my decision?

When looking to install or replace windows in your home, it’s essential to understand that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Pella Windows and Doors offers three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is regularly picked for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it provides any room, but it is also a good material for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors can protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows provide great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme temperatures. Vinyl windows are a great fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. The windows stay looking great for ages while providing excellent energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t put flower pots or anything outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What choices do I have?

If you love the casement-style window but prefer to keep your flower boxes, check out window replacement to in-swing casement windows that use 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 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 by your windows.

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

Weathered windows are common after many years of use. Many can be cleaned as long as you have the proper products. Occassionally it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes it requires something stronger like vinegar to remove dirt— but you shouldn’t ever use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Be sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are removed and never paint over your windows without viewing the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a difficult scrape or break that you can’t get rid of, give our experts a call at Pella Windows and Doors in Kansas City and we can discuss reasonable replacement windows.
