Not sure where to direct your window questions? Are you questioning if they are as efficient as they could be or how you can make them more functional? Our professionals at Pella Windows and Doors are here to assist and answer your window questions:
What type of window should I select for my house? How does the Annapolis climate affect my decision?
When taking the steps to install or replace windows in your home, it’s essential 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 chosen for its beauty, and the warmth and flexibility that it provides any room, but it is also a great material for energy efficiency, and our features like EnduraClad® aluminum clad exteriors helps to protect your windows from the elements. Fiberglass windows provide great durability against the outdoor elements, even in extreme temps. Vinyl windows are an ideal fit if you are looking for a good low maintenance product. These windows stay looking great for ages while providing excellent energy efficiency.
I love my casement-style/awning-style windows, but I can’t place flower pots or items outside my windows without hitting them when I open my windows. What options do I have?
If you love the casement-style window but prefer to keep your flower boxes, consider window replacement to in-swing casement windows that use 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 also look at 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 can I get rid of them?
Weathered windows are usual after lots of use. The majority can be cleaned when you have the appropriate products. Occassionally it can be as simple as a soft cloth and mild soap, sometimes it requires something stronger like vinegar to remove dirt— but you must not 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 persistent scrape or break that you can’t get rid of, reach out to our experts at Pella Windows and Doors in Annapolis and we can chat about reasonable replacement windows.
