Your window questions answered by the pros

Your window questions answered by the pros

Uncertain where to direct your window questions? Are you wondering if your windows 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 support you and answer your window questions:

What type of window should I pick for my house? How does the Concord climate impact my decision?

When getting ready to install or replace windows in your home, it’s vital to note that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Pella Windows and Doors has three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is typically selected for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it gives to any room, but it is also an ideal choice for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors will help protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows provide great durability against the external elements, even in extreme temps. Vinyl windows are a great fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. These windows stay looking great for a long duration while providing excellent energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t set 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 also want to keep your flower boxes, think about 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 simply lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is not as important to you as the outdoor plantings surrounding your windows.

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

Weathered windows are typical after lots of use. Many can be cleaned as long as you have the proper products. At times it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you’ll need something stronger like vinegar to remove dirt— but you must not use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Be sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are erased 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 fix, reach out to our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Concord and we can talk about reasonable replacement windows.
