Your window questions answered by the pros

Your window questions answered by the pros

Unsure where to go with your window questions? Are you wondering 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 support you and answer your window curiosities:

What type of window should I select for my house? How does the Natick climate influence my decision?

When taking the steps 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 offers three main window material types – wood, fiberglass and vinyl. Wood is typically chosen for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it offers any room, but it is also an ideal choice for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors will help protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows offer great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme heat and cold. Vinyl windows are an ideal fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. These windows stay looking great for a long duration while providing exceptional energy efficiency.

I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t put 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 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 by your windows.

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

Weathered windows are common after many years of use. The majority can be cleaned if you have the correct products. Sometimes 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. Make sure to clean off the residue on your windows once scuffs are erased and do not paint over your windows without reading the replacement window warranty policy. If it comes down to a stubborn scrape or break that you cannot repair, give our experts a call at Pella Windows and Doors in Natick and we can talk about reasonable replacement windows.
