Your window questions answered by the pros

Your window questions answered by the pros

Not sure where to go with your window questions? Are you speculating if your windows are as efficient as they could be or how you can increase the functionality? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to help and answer your window curiosities:

What type of window should I select for my house? How does the Lewes climate impact 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 has three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is typically chosen for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it gives to any room, but it is also a good 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 good fit if you are looking for 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 choices do I have?

If you love the casement-style window but prefer 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 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 just lift up or pull down, if the style of the window is less significant 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 years and years of use. Most can be cleaned when you have the correct products. At times 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 gone and don’t paint over your windows without reading the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a stubborn scrape or break that you can’t get rid of, give our experts a call at Pella Windows and Doors in Lewes and we can discuss reasonable replacement windows.
