Your window questions answered by the pros

Published on

Unsure where to go with your window questions? Are you wondering if they are as efficient as they could be or how you can add functionality? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to help and answer your window curiosities:

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

When getting ready to install or replace windows in your home, it’s vital 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 usually chosen for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it offers any room, but it is also a good choice for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors helps to protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows provide great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme temps. Vinyl windows are a great fit if you are seeking a good low maintenance product. They stay looking great for many years while providing remarkable energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t place flower pots or anything outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What alternatives 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 give a similar option, allowing your windows to swing inside instead of outside, when replacing an awning style window. You can consider 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 around your windows.

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

Weathered windows are usual after many years of use. The majority can be cleaned if you have the correct products. At times it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you may need something stronger like vinegar to remove dirt— but you must not use harsh chemicals or products on windows. Make sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are gone and do not paint over your windows without viewing the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a persistent scrape or break that you can’t get rid of, give our experts a call at Pella Windows and Doors in Haverhill and we can chat about reasonable replacement windows.
