Your window questions answered by the pros

Your window questions answered by the pros

Not sure where to ask your window questions? Are you questioning if your windows are as efficient as they could be or how you can add functionality? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to support you and answer your window questions:

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

When getting ready to install or replace windows in your home, it’s essential to note 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 regularly selected for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it gives to any room, but it is also a great choice 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 temperatures. Vinyl windows are a good fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. They stay looking great for a long duration while providing exceptional energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t set flower pots or objects 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, consider window replacement to in-swing casement windows that offer 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 always go with double- and single-hung replacement windows that simply lift up or pull down, if the style of the window doesn’t matter as much 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 typical after lots of use. The majority can be cleaned when you have the appropriate products. Sometimes it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes you’ll need something stronger like vinegar to cut through 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 removed 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 get rid of, call our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Jackson and we can talk about reasonable replacement windows.
