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 questioning if they 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 wonders:

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

When looking to install or replace windows in your home, it’s important to recognize that different window materials are made for different home benefits. Pella Windows and Doors provides three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is usually selected for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it provides any room, but it is also an ideal material for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors will help protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows deliver great durability against the outside elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are a good fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. They stay looking great for years while providing excellent energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t put flower pots or items 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, check out window replacement to in-swing casement windows that offer an indoor window swing direction instead. Hopper style windows provide 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 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 usual after years and years of use. The majority can be cleaned as long as you have the appropriate products. At times it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you may need something stronger like vinegar to cut through 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 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 cannot repair, give our experts a call at Pella Windows and Doors in Binghamton and we can talk about reasonable replacement windows.
