Your window questions answered by the pros

Your window questions answered by the pros

Uncertain where to direct your window questions? Are you speculating if they’re 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 wonders:

What type of window should I choose for my house? How does the Hingham 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 provides three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is usually picked for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it offers any room, but it is also a great choice for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors can protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows deliver great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme temps. Vinyl windows are a good fit if you are seeking a good low maintenance product. The windows stay looking great for ages while providing remarkable 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 would like 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 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 do I get rid of them?

Weathered windows are typical after many years of use. The majority can be cleaned as long as you have the proper products. Occassionally it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes it requires something stronger like vinegar to get rid of 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 looking at 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 Hingham and we can discuss reasonable replacement windows.
