It is normal to get upset
when your home isn’t performing up to expectations. When it comes to windows,
Pella offers professionals with an answer to your window issues.
My vinyl windows have scuffs all over them, I am uncertain
how to get rid of them.
- Luckily, there is a basic
fix to clean up weathered vinyl windows. As long as you are careful
of what product you clean with, vinyl windows should
be simple 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 critical
to remove residue after the scuffs are erased. Do not
paint over your windows as a fix without reading the replacement window warranty policy – some companies terminate the warranty if vinyl windows are painted by the homeowner.
Common Concern: I don’t know which window type to select
– and I have heard that climate plays a role.
- Different window materials offer
unique benefits to your home. When looking to buy
or replace windows, speak with your local window professional
to decide what material may 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 resilient against even the most
extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a great low
maintenance option, and give you great
energy efficiency – keeping your home more comfy year-round. If you want the beauty of wood, Pella’s
EnduraClad® aluminum-clad exteriors help shield wood frames
from outside elements.
Common Concern: I
cannot open my casement style windows without hitting my patio flower boxes. I
don’t want to throw away my flowers, what other choices
do I have?
- To save your flowers, there are different types
of replacement windows you can buy. If you want
the casement style, swap out your window with an
in-swing casement style. This allows you to preserve the
feel of your home with a small switch of a window swing direction. In-swing replacement
windows are also offered in a two-sash, French style. Double and single-hung windows permit ventilation
without swinging outside or into your home. With an easy lift up or pull down, double and single-hung replacement
windows mean you can feel the breeze and fresh
air without the need to shift any flowers.
